LEGO®-based therapy aims to develop social competence through the development of social skills. Collaborative play provides opportunities for children to practise skills for turn-taking, listening, sharing ideas, communication, compromise, problem solving and shared attention. LEGO®-based therapy has been found to be suitable for children with autism and related conditions, aged 6-16. Sessions should be run on a weekly basis with facilitation from a trained adult.
LEGO®-based therapy training provides the information and resources required to set up groups in schools or community settings (LEGO® or construction materials will need to be purchased before running groups). The training is suitable for teaching assistants, teachers, SENCOs, speech and language therapists and learning mentors.
