LEGO therapy is a social development programme which helps children with autism spectrum disorders and related social communication difficulties. It was created by Clinical Neuropsychologist Dr Dan LeGoff as a way of getting pupils to socialise appropriately.
Not only does it hugely benefit pupils with ASD but it can also be used with other children as a way of developing and reinforcing play skills and social skills such as:
• Verbal and non-verbal communication
• Joint attention
• Task focus
• Sharing and turn-taking
• Collaborative problem-solving
