Lego as an Intervention
In this practical two-part course, delegates will gain an understanding of the theory and practicalities for the use of LEGO kits.
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.
This workshop is designed for staff in Early Years settings, Primary and Secondary schools.
