Glasgow East End Community Carers has been supporting carers since 1991. Our Carers Hub offers a range of supports to parents and their families across communities in the East End of Glasgow.
Play-Sense is our pre-school play group dedicated to parents and their children with disabilities and additional support needs including autism, development delay and physical disabilities.
Play-Sense is more than a play group.
- children with disabilities/additional support needs can enhance their skills for life by developing communication and motor skills through an emphasis on sensory play.
- children with disabilities/additional support needs can take time out in a calm, nurturing environment with access to our sensory room.
- parents access a range of professional carer supports and learning opportunities.
- parents connect with and support one another and reduce their feelings of stress and isolation in a safe, supportive environment
Sensory play has an important role in child development. It helps children of all abilities develop gross and fine motor skills, language and communication, thinking & problem solving and social skills.
At Play-Sense your child will have access to our sensory room in addition to our play room. We offer a programme of visiting sensory practitioners who will stimulate your child via a broad range of activities including messy art and play, music and technology.
