About

A 4-week training program to teach parents and practitioners the skills they need to run a LEGO®-Based Therapy program


What is LEGO®-Based Therapy?
LEGO®-Based Therapy is an evidence-informed, play-based, social communication program, developed by Daniel LeGoff in the early 2000’s. It is a child lead, gentle way of helping develop social communication skills whilst still being true to the individual’s neurotype.

LEGO®-Based Therapy is a strengths-based program that works by teaching the participant observation and adaptability skills rather than rote language or a checklist of social information. The participants learn to look to each other for information, support and build relationships in a safe and respectful environment.

LEGO®-Based Therapy doesn’t aim to make the autistic child communicate more typically, but, instead, it gives them the tools they need to adapt how they communicate. It is designed to be fun, create connections, and improve relationships.
