Lego club is based on the basic principles of play therapy and Lego based therapy (- originated by Daniel Legoff in the USA). Lego club is much more than simply playing with bricks.
LEGO JO guides the children through a series of development and encourages the children to address and resolve peer to peer or social communication issues, helping them to express their feelings whilst learning problem solving skills.
Elements Therapies facilitated group sessions can help develop and reinforce play and social skills such as
- Verbal and non-verbal communication
- Joint attention
- Task focus
- Sharing and turn taking
- Problem solving
- Following and giving detailed instruction
- Asking for help
Lego Club is a fun way to build upon existing and emerging skills and the possibilities are endless!
Play, have fun, listen, reflect, nurture and build.
"Elements Therapies LEGO have been working with small groups of targeted children at our school for around 18 months now and we have seen great results. The children involved with the programme are children who have or are pending a diagnosis for Autism, Asperger Syndrome or ADHD, along with pupils who benefit from practice with social interaction and communication skills. Pupils are able to explore, play, create, design and build whilst practising their listening and communication skills and learning that is ok to fail. Lynsey and LEGO JO are extremely professional and all our pupils have quickly developed a 'bond' with them, which allows them to benefit fully from each session. Lynsey and LEGO JO are patient and calm when dealing with pupils with complex needs. I would highly recommend Lynsey, LEGO JO and the Lego Therapy programme." - FP Headteacher.
