Elements Therapies have developed a Lego based intervention for schools that help with social and relational communication whilst developing skills such as following instructions, giving instruction, sharing, communication, and tidying up.
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 Lego; a trained facilitator guides the children through a series of development and encourages them 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.
We have our very own Lego Jo at Elements Therapies. Jo loves all things Lego and helping children to grow and learn especially whilst having fun!
Lego Jo’s sessions are planned and structured around the needs and requirements of the school and the children. All sessions are 6-7 weeks in length depending on the length of the term and vary in content dependant on the needs of the children attending.
The sessions are designed to allow the skills of the children to grow and change over time, with discreet assessments being documented along the way.
All Lego, resources and checklists are provided.
