Do you have children in your setting who struggle to communicate with others? To express their feelings? To develop relationships with others? Or who are unable to problem solve?
LEGO® based therapy is more than simply playing with little multi-coloured bricks. It is a social development programme which helps children and young people to communicate with others, to relate to the world around them, and to be guided to address and resolve their problems.
Principally aimed at children with autism, lego therapy can be used with children who have a wide range of communication, developmental and emotional health needs. This workshop is designed to equip TAs, NQTs and Early Career Teachers with an introduction to the principles of Lego Therapy - whether they are teaching in special or mainstream education setting.

It will be interactive, and will give participants lots of practical ideas for applying the principles of lego therapy with their most vulnerable learners.
