LEGO STAR WARS HOLIDAY GROUP!
After all of our hard work this year we can’t wait to get into something fun over the holidays. Feel free to give us a call at the clinic if you are interested in finding out more about our holiday group, or you can read a little bit about the science behind LEGO therapy below:
LEGO® based therapy is a social development programme which helps children and young people with autism spectrum disorders and related social communication difficulties, such as Asperger’s Syndrome. The programme is based on the highly structured, systematic and predictable nature of LEGO play which makes it appealing to children with social communication difficulties who are particularly attracted to systems.
Much more than simply playing with LEGO bricks, LEGO therapy includes the presence of a clinician who guides the children and encourages them to address and resolve their problems. Through LEGO therapy, children can learn to communicate with others, express their feelings, change their behaviour, develop problem-solving skills and develop a relationship with the world around them.
