LEGO® Based Therapy
The goals of LEGO® Therapy workshops for children with autism are to improve their motivation to initiate social contact with peers.
LEGO® Based Therapy is a social development intervention for children with autism. It has been specifically designed to focus on children’s strengths in a social context and to make learning fun. The goals of LEGO® Therapy workshops for children with autism are to improve their motivation to initiate social contact with peers and to improve their ability to sustain inter-action with peers for a period of time. LEGO® Therapy encourages autistic children to communicate with one another and solve a problem by building in pairs or groups of three, according to set rules.
It can also be effective for children with anxiety disorders (especially social phobia), depression, or adjustment difficulties manifesting as depression or anxiety, including children with behaviour disorders, such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), or other externalizing disorders, who also have social skill problems.
