LEGO® -Based Therapy
LEGO® -Based Therapy is a social development programme designed for children and teenagers with social communication difficulties. By working together to build LEGO® models, participants have the opportunity to develop social skills such as turn taking, communication and collaboration.
How does it work?
During a typical LEGO®-Based Therapy session, 3-4 children of similar ages and abilities work together to build a LEGO® model. Each child will be given a role:
- The Engineer: The person who receives the set of directions
- The Supplier: The person who has the pieces needed to build the set
- The Builder: The person responsible for putting the pieces together and following the directions of the engineer
Benefits of Lego® -Based Therapy
Prior to the start of the session, “LEGO® Club” rules will be introduced. These will be a combination of rules created by the facilitator and rules that the children have come up with.
The children’s roles will be rotated throughout the session to allow each child to experience the different responsibilities. After each session, the children will have the opportunity to discuss what they did well, and what they need to work on in the next session.
LEGO®-Based Therapy is great for practicing and developing a wide-range of skills such as:
- Language skills (giving and receiving instructions)
- working together as a team
- Joint attention,
- Joint accomplishment,
- Verbal and non-verbal communication
Our facilitators have been trained and certified as a LEGOⓇ-Based Therapy Practitioners by Dr. Danial LeGoff, the pioneer of LegoⓇ Based Therapy.
