Do you have children in your setting who struggle to communicate with others? To express their feelings? To develop relationships with others? Or who are unable to problem solve?
LEGO® based therapy is more than simply playing with little multi-coloured bricks. It is a social development programme which helps children and young people to communicate with others, to relate to the world around them, and to be guided to address and resolve their problems.
Principally aimed at children with autism, lego therapy can be used with children who have a wide range of communication, developmental and emotional health needs. This workshop is designed to equip TAs, NQTs and Early Career Teachers with an introduction to the principles of Lego Therapy – whether they are teaching in special or mainstream education setting.
What is Lego Therapy, in theory?
How can it be used to support Communication and emotional health?
Senior Leaders and experienced class teachers from the Iffley Academy will work with you to address individual cases.
● Introduction to the use of Lego Therapy as a tool to support children with SEND, or who are experiencing short-term crisis.
● Identifying a place for Lego Therapy within the Communication Curriculum
● A chance to practically explore Lego Therapy.
● To explore how the principles of Lego Therapy can be easily transferred to your classroom with experts in the field.
The session will be led by senior leaders from The Iffley Academy, an Outstanding Special School for children with complex special educational needs. It will be interactive, and will give participants lots of practical ideas for applying the principles of Lego therapy with their most vulnerable learners.
