LEGO Therapy Facilitator Training for those on the Autism Spectrum.
LEGO-Based therapy is an evidence-based social skills program developed for people on the Autism Spectrum by Daniel Le-Goff and Simon Baron-Cohen. It has been successfully replicated across the world and fits well into the New Zealand and Australian context.
It is an excellent therapy model for RTLB's, teachers, clinicians and professionals with existing skills and knowledge in group theory, clinical reasoning and Autism.
The facilitator Elen Nathan will introduce delegates to the background of LEGO-Based Therapy and how to run LEGO-Based Therapy for individuals on the autism spectrum. The importance is placed on hands-on practice and the adult facilitator’s role in LEGO-Based Therapy. Step-by-step instructions on how to run successful groups in order to promote social skills and collaborative play through a naturalistic setting will be provided. Printable resources will also be provided so delegates can start running LEGO-Based Therapy groups after completing the workshop.
This workshop is ideal for people working with individuals on the autism spectrum who want to set up and facilitate LEGO-Based Therapy groups:
Psychologists, Counsellors, Teachers, Speech and Language Therapists, Clinical and allied staff, Teaching assistants, Key workers, SENCOs and occupational therapists
