Frequently Asked Questions
What are you doing in light of COVID-19?
We are keeping up to date with Government Guidelines and changing our services in order to keep everything safe. Our 1-to-1 sessions, consultations, and trainings are online; our Playschemes are outdoors and we have postponed our Lego®-based Therapy Sessions.
When does the Playscheme Run?
The Playscheme runs on a monthly basis from September to June. It is on a Saturday towards the end of the month depending on holidays.
How busy is the Playscheme?
We have an average of 35 to 45 people attending each month. On a busy day this can be up to 55.
Is the Playscheme suitable for people who are non-verbal?
Yes we have people who are non-verbal, but we are not equipped for people with severe developmental delays.
Do you have to have a diagnosis of autism?
We take people who are going through the process of diagnosis as well as those who have one.
Do you work with adults?
Our 1-to-1 sessions are primarily for children, though we consider teenagers and adults in certain circumstances. Please get in touch with us if you wish to enquire further.
We work with teenagers and adults in school and work settings.
Is your Lego®-based Therapy the original one?
The simple answer to this is “Yes”. However, our team are flexible and will take into account the needs of the person.
What is different about your training?
We like to take a positive view whilst being realistic about the difficulties faced by people on the autistic spectrum.
Why do you use ‘on the autistic spectrum’?
We follow the guidance from the National Autistic Society to use identity first language as many people feel their autism is a fundamental part of their identity.
