Lego®-Based Therapy is an evidence informed social communication program.  It is not a behavioural based "social skill" program.  It works by teaching the participant observation and adaptability skills rather than rote language or a checklist of social communication. 

Lego®-Based Therapy uses Lego® to:

  • Build social and communication skills
  • Create a fun and playful environment
  • Create relationships and connection
  • Build a framework for communication
  • Build on individual strengths
  • Build fine motor skills
  • Child led and child directed
  • Improve problem solving skills

The benefits of Lego®-Based Therapy are:

  • Improved communication
  • Observation skills
  • Improved behaviour
  • Improved use of language 
  • Improved concentration 
  • Develop non verbal communication 
  • Improved play skills
  • Good skill retention

How does it work?

Lego®-Based Therapy involves 2 components:

  1. 30 minutes of structured play with participants taking roles of either "Engineer", "Supplier" or "Builder".  This time helps to formalise and instruct social learning, develops language and communication, develops critical thinking and adaptive skills and supports problem solving.  
  2. 20 minutes of freeplay to practice implementing their social learning allowing for participants to explore their creativity and fosters relationships and interactions in a natural way.  

The roles of Lego®-Based Therapy are:

  1. The Facilitator - The Facilitator of the group is Social Worker, Chantelle.  Chantelle will observe the group, support with developing communication and stepping back to allow participants to problem solve and use their toolbox of strategies to get through the build.  
  2. The Engineer - The Engineer has control of the instruction booklet.  The Engineer describes the bricks that the supplier is looking for, and tells them where those bricks go.  Engineers can use a communication visual to help with explanations. 
  3. The Supplier - The Supplier has control of the bricks.  They find the bricks the Engineer asks for and passes them to the builder. 
  4. The Builder - The Builder has control of the building plate to build the project.  The Builder gets the bricks from the supplier and listens to the instructions from the Engineer.
