Lego Therapy

Lego Therapy 

LEGO-Based Therapy is a social development programme that uses LEGO activities to support the development of a wide range of social skills within a group setting.

LEGO-Based Therapy was developed in the mid-1990s by US paediatric neuropsychologist Daniel LeGoff. He was inspired by watching two of his customers with Autism Spectrum Disorder play with LEGO in his waiting room and displaying previous non-demonstrated positive social interactions.

While initially developed for autistic children, LEGO-Based Therapy has since been found to benefit children with a variety of communication and social developmental difficulties.
