Brick Club - for children with SEND

An interest-led play session using LEGO bricks as a therapeutic tool for children with SEND. 

ABOUT LEGO-BASED THERAPY

LEGO®-based therapy is a collaborative play therapy in which children work together to build LEGO® models. The original concept was pioneers by Dr Daniel Legoff a clinical psychologist for the United States (2004). Since then many studies have been completed on small peer groups of children. This evidence suggests after 6 weeks of Lego®-based Therapy children will begin to self-initiate play, become less aloof and behaviour will become less rigid.

The aim of  Brick Club is to encourage the use of special interests to improve the mental health and well-being of children and young people with SEND. Sessions are split into two main tasks.

THE FIRST IS THE GROUP BUILDING TASK

The task of the building is divided into different roles, so that social interaction is necessary to participate. By doing this, children practice key skills of collaboration, joint attention, sharing, turn-taking, communication, social problem-solving, and compromise.

THE SECOND IS FREE-PLAY TASK

This allows children to explore various challenges and activities arranged in a loose manner. This gives children the freedom to test their skills, and really illustrates to us the effectiveness of the programme.
