An intervention which uses Lego and construction to develop social skills, from communication and problem-solving, through to turn taking, conflict resolution and coping mechanisms for when things don’t go to plan. Social development is at the heart of this session. Students learn to develop confidence in their social abilities. You can teach many areas of the EHCP through Lego Therapy.
As well as the obvious social and communication skills that are developed during this session, we also develop our cognition skills, using positional language, adjectives and verbs. Students describe objects in detail and are encouraged to look for patterns and shapes.
