LEGO® Based Therapy & LEGO® Brick Clubs
Brick clubs were designed to support children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We have innovated and created our own brick clubs for all ages, used in a wide range of our workshops and family learning to develop skills such as collaboration, communication, problem solving, innovation and symbolic thinking by learning through play.
