Lego Group Programs
Lego Based Therapy is an evidence-based program developed by Daniel LeGoff, which aims to develop children’s social communication skills through play. It uses children’s love of Lego, as well as their strengths and interests, to develop communication and improve their social skills.
Children are taught observation and adaptability skills and to learn to look for each other for support and build relationships in a safe environment. When children play with Lego, they’re more likely to interact with each other, listen and work together through collaborative play.
Some benefits of the program include:
- Improve social communication
