Wednesday 26th April | 09:30 - 11:30 | Countess Wear Community School
This workshop aims to teach adult facilitators the benefits of Lego therapy as an intervention for children on the autistic spectrum. Whilst understanding the theory of Lego therapy, there will be the opportunity for delegates to take part in a session which illustrates how Lego therapy differs from merely playing with Lego.
It will look at the outcomes for many young people (i.e. developing social skills such as turn taking, social negotiations and collaborative play). The workshop will also demonstrate the roles of those involved (including adults) and explains how this can potentially improve the social opportunities for young people.
