LEGO-based Therapy is a skill-building approach that focuses on social interaction and the development of age-appropriate peer relationships. By working together toward a task, such as building a specific Lego set, participants are able to experience collaboration, conflict resolution, negotiation, shared goals, joint accomplishment, social communication and mutual respect. This group runs continuously, and a one-month commitment is required.
Who is Eligible to Attend: This group is for children in kindergarten through middle school. Knowledge of basic social skills (turn-taking) is required. The ability to follow verbal instructions, keep Legos out of the mouth and maintain safety of self and others even when stressed is required. This group is for “fine-tuning” and reinforcing social development.
Cost: $80 per hour session plus a fee of $10 to cover the cost of Legos and other materials.
