Lego Based Therapy
Lego®-based Therapy has been developed in America with great success. The groups have been proven to help those with autism or related social communication difficulties.
Lego®-based Therapy is run weekly in Brookfields and is run by Jody and supported by Speech and Language Therapy Practitioner Jude. There is a lot more to the sessions than playing with bricks, as groups follow a structure that helps to develop children's communication and social skills. This is done by encouraging turn taking and working together to build models and by modelling from the adult leading the group. We run a Lego club weekly.
The members of the Lego groups are having a great deal of fun working together each week, whilst developing social skills and building great models.
