PlayConnect playgroups are part of the Australian Government’s $190 million Helping Children with Autism package which provides support and services for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Playgroup Australia has received funding from the Australian Government to establish 150 PlayConnect playgroups from July 2008 to June 2012.

Families are very much involved with planning and running the PlayConnect playgroup sessions.

PlayConnect playgroups offer play activities suited to the needs of children aged 0-6 years with ASD or ASD like symptoms but are not early intervention therapy. Siblings and other family members are welcome to attend. Families have the opportunity to learn more about the early intervention services funded under the Australian Government's 'Helping Children with Autism' package.

Attending a PlayConnect playgroup is a great way for families to create a support network.
