What is Lego® based Therapy

LEGO® based Therapy is an innovative approach that harnesses the creativity and collaborative nature of LEGO® building to help children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other children with social communication challenges. Developed by Dr. Daniel B. LeGoff, this therapy focuses on improving communication, cooperation, and problem-solving skills through structured play.

How it Works

In our program, children work in small groups to complete LEGO® projects. Each child takes on a specific role, such as:

•         Engineer: Is responsible for the design.

•         Supplier: Finds and provides the necessary pieces.

•         Builder: Assembles the pieces according to the design.

By working together to achieve a common goal, children practice important social skills in a supportive and enjoyable setting.

The Benefits of Lego® based Therapy 

•  Enhanced Communication: Children learn to express their ideas clearly and listen to others. 

•         Improved Cooperation: Teamwork is essential as children take turns and share responsibilities. 

•         Boosted Confidence: Completing projects successfully helps build self-esteem. 

•         Problem-Solving Skills: Kids develop resilience and creativity as they work through challenges. 

•         Fun and Engaging: The playful nature of LEGO® makes therapy enjoyable and motivating.
