Lego-Based Therapy Play Group
The Lego Therapy System can provide an interactive play group for our students with an intrinsically motivating means to improve their ability to work with a partner/group and understand their role within the group, ultimately building and improving their social relationships. Basic Principles of Lego-Based Therapy include:
- Allows children of all ages to participate
- Inherently motivating
- Collaborative process to teach joint attention, sharing, turn-taking, problem-solving, patience and mutual respect
- Emphasizes social identity development for students who might otherwise be socially isolated.
Lego Therapy System utilizes “Freestyle” Building and Group Kit Building:
- Free Style building allows the child to design and build their own creation from “loose” Lego pieces.
- Group building with sets provides 3 Roles: Engineer verbally describes Lego piece to Part Supplier and directs the Builder where to place the Lego piece; Builder follows Engineers’ directions and places the piece where directed; Part Supplier locates the piece described and gives it to Builder. Participants rotate roles during the LEGO group.
