Lego Based Therapy - Places selling fast

LEGO-Based Therapy is an evidence based social skills programme for individuals on the autism spectrum. The programme was originally developed by Clinical Psychologist Daniel Le Goff (2004) in the United States. Past research has shown that school-aged children and adolescents who attended LEGO-Based Therapy made significant improvement in their social skills (Owens et al., 2008) and anxiety (Nguyen 2016).

The reason behind the success is that LEGO-Based Therapy is using children’s own natural interests in LEGO to promote development of social communication and play. Sessions are highly structured, and rule governed with each participant having a specific role (builder, helper, engineer) and facilitated by a trained facilitator. LEGO-Based Therapy has been applied to a variety of settings, including clinics, education, and community.
