LEGO® Social Clubs

LEGO® based therapy is an evidence-based approach that works towards supporting children to develop their social communication skills; sharing, turn-taking, working together, following instructions and problem-solving.

  • Allows exploration and expression of ideas, emotions and feelings
  • Validates self-esteem and confidence
  • Provides an opportunity for social contact with others

What is LEGO® Based Therapy?

LEGO® Based Therapy is an evidence based, positive, structured, child-centred social development communication program.

Pioneered by paediatric Neuropsychologist Daniel B. LeGoff in the mid 90’s and further developed from the early 2000’s.

Initially developed for improving social competence in children with Autism Spectrum Conditions (LeGoff et al, 2004).
Beneficial for children with other social communication difficulties such as anxiety, depression, social phobias, ADHD.
Research shows that LEGO® Based Therapy taps into the natural interest and motivations of children, making it a highly effective form of therapy.
Exploiting a child’s natural curiosity and motivation within the LEGO® system of play to dictate a behavioural change is the fundamental ethos of LEGO® Based Therapy.
Improves and promotes social communication & interaction.

What do the sessions look like?

 

A typical LEGO® Therapy session goes for one hour and is offered weekly. (School term duration)

Sessions are run by staff who have an early education background and have undergone a LEGO® Based Therapy Facilitator Certification. Those running such groups are very much taking on the role of facilitator and guide. These sessions are focused on resolving difficulties, improving communication, engaging with other children, expressing feelings and developing problem-solving skills.

I have seen such a positive change in my child’s ability to interact with others and express their thoughts and feelings. They are more confident and comfortable in social situations, which has been such a relief to see as a parent.”

Simone L

Parent

My child has always been fascinated with building with Legos, so when we heard about these therapy classes, we were immediately interested. Not only has my child had a blast building with others in the class, but they have also learned so much about working together, communicating effectively, and problem-solving.”
