"Recently, our beautiful 20 month old son was diagnosed with ASD. This is an immensely sad and confusing time for us filled with such uncertainty of what the future holds for our little angel. ASD does not only affect the life of the person diagnosed, it also affects the lives of all the people who love him."

"In the early stages of [the diagnostic process] … doctors were not listening and PlayConnect groups were amazing in allowing me to get other parents’ advice on how to make professional see that something isn’t right with your child … and also to be the best advocate you can be, for your child."

"You get so busy that you forget they are still just kids. You get caught up in doing things that will help him and teach him. You’re always at preschool, speech therapy, early intervention programs, doctors, specialists, which fill up the week, but the kids also need to be kids and just play and have fun."

"I am beyond grateful for your guidance and support this year. Watching you deal with our son has been extremely educational, for both him and me. I am filled with gratitude that I found your playgroup this year, we are very, very lucky."

"Prior to attending your playgroup, our son was completely disengaged with other kids. He was only interested in living in his own world and never interacted with anyone. We still remember the day when he first came to the playgroup and he was just crying and didn’t participate in any of the activities. And now, when we look at him, we couldn’t believe it was the same person. He has made immense progress."

"Attending PlayConnect playgroup this year has been amazing. It has made such a difference to us and our daughter has made some great progress. It has definitely helped us get through some very difficult times especially being so new to this. We appreciate all the love, support, knowledge that has come our way. The Facilitators are just amazing and are so supportive and wonderful. Angels in disguise. Thankyou so much."
