How LEGO® based therapy works

The goal is to build the types of skills that can help better engage, share experiences and collaborate. Working with groups to encourage problem-solving, communication, and engagement, use LEGO® to build motor skills, facilitate speech and enhance social communication.

LEGO® based therapy can be expanded to encourage creative play and collaboration through storytelling, activities and innovation, working together to build much more elaborate LEGO Mindstorms robots and program them. In these more advanced scenarios, they collaborate in complex world-building, storytelling and design.
