Lego as an Intervention

Delegates will gain an understanding of the theory and practicalities for the use of LEGO kits.

Workshop objectives

In this practical two-part course, delegates will gain an understanding of the theory and practicalities for the use of LEGO kits with children who have communication and interaction difficulties, as well as guidance and feedback on setting up and running LEGO groups in school.

Workshop content

Originally devised in the U.S. as a therapeutic intervention by Daniel Legoff, there is now a growing interest amongst schools in the use of LEGO kits to promote the development of communication and interaction skills in children and young people with ASD.

The format and structure of a LEGO group session combined with the inherently motivating and engaging aspect of using LEGO kits to build a model, has been demonstrated to have a positive impact on the development of key pro-social skills.

Session 1 covers theory and setting up of a LEGO group
Session 2 covers troubleshooting, feedback and evaluating your group

Participants will need to bring 1 small LEGO kit (The 3 in 1 Creator Kits are ideal and cost approximately £5 from supermarkets).

Target Audience

Staff in Early Years settings, Primary and Secondary schools.
