Autism Services For Families
We understand that living with a child on the autistic spectrum makes family life different. Our services are provided with these differences in mind.
Our Playschemes are safe, inclusive, autism friendly environments for the whole family, not just those members who are on the spectrum or going through diagnosis. Whether everyone in the family comes or not, we ask at least one parent or carer to stay and have responsibility for their children.
Bookings are being made online using this website, please check the news and events page for booking options. Please get in touch to be added to the mailing list if you would like notifications each time registration opens.

We provide a selection of teas, coffees, juice, and snacks, though families are also welcome to bring their own.
Research has shown that Lego®-based Therapy is a fun, effective intervention to promote the social skills of those on the autistic spectrum. We use the prescribed framework of the therapy and support participants to work in teams of 2 or 3 with adult supervision. Initially they build kits by following the instructions and when they’re ready they design and build models together.
There is an upcoming series of sessions each Wednesday from the 19th April to 31st May between 4:30pm and 5:30pm. The cost is £280 for the whole course.
The course will take place at the Bearsden Baptist Church, 14 Roman Road, Bearsden, G61 2SL.

We understand that living with someone on the autistic spectrum can be very challenging. Issues arise which are not present within normal family life. When faced with these issues it can be difficult to know where to turn or what to do. Our consultations are for those times, or for anyone who needs a listening ear. Come with an issue and leave with a plan which will be emailed to you afterwards. All consultations are currently being held online.
The cost is £70 per hour.
