Lego® Therapy  

For social skills development

Our Lego®  Therapy group programs for children aged 3-5 or 6-10 years will support the development of skills such as sharing, turn-taking, collaboration, conflict resolution, and verbal and non-verbal communication – facilitated by a psychologist and speech-language pathologist. Since 2004, Lego® Therapy has been used to help children with Autism Spectrum Disorder or social communication difficulties to develop these vital skills.Each child has a specific role and they work together to build a model. They’ll have fun, explore their creativity and interact with others in a supported environment.

What we’ll work on

  • Collaboration – by working as a group to achieve a common goal
  • Joint problem solving, sharing and turn-taking – taking turns in different roles, working on the build together
  • Maintaining attention – staying focused on the task to build the models
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication – using language and non-verbal skills to express ideas and feelings
  • Conflict resolution – working through differences for a shared aim
  • Creativity – in coming up with a group name, building the models and free playtime
  • Fine motor skills – for manipulating the Lego® blocks
