This interactive and informative training will equip participants with the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to be able to set up and deliver a Lego club, giving particular attention to the use of structured and free-style Lego play. Lego-based therapy is a skill-building approach using Lego play. Using the structured and predictable nature of Lego, it attempts to improve basic social interaction and communication skills.
Because Lego is fun, it also helps to increase a child’s underlying motivation and interest for engaging in social interaction and establishing peer relationships. Originally developed for children with Autism, it can also be useful for any children where social skills have not developed naturally or where there are gaps. There will be a gap of approximately two weeks between the sessions, where participants will be encouraged to set up a Lego club and run a session, prior to attending the second half-day.
