What is a Brick Club?
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.
Learners are encouraged to work together to build a range of LEGO® models, which helps to develop social skills, compromise and build friendships. Brick clubs are provided for groups, or individually, the goal is to provide an engaging and enjoyable experience, learning and developing skills while having fun.
Brick Clubs Aims
The goal is to encourage learners to work together with fun and engaging activities. They can have different roles and outcomes, which encourages them to work together and improve social interaction and communication.
Typical roles are The Engineer who has instructions to build a model, they request bricks from The Supplier who supplies bricks on request to The Builder who is given instructions by The Engineer to build the model. Sometimes you’ll also need The Director, who makes sure the team is working well together and communicating.
Why LEGO® Based Therapy for Brick Clubs Was Created
LEGO® is extremely popular and recognised not only as a toy, but used to create art, therefore it provides simple, predictable and repeatable activities. Using LEGO® requires good motor skills and hand strength, using visual and analytical skills.
Most learners love LEGO®, so it’s a simple way to teach essential skills by learning through play. It’s built around existing, effective, risk-free therapies, which helps to build skills and possibly meaningful friendships built around common interests.
ENCOURAGE. CREATIVITY. PROBLEM SOLVING. COMMUNICATION. FUN. COLLABORATION. FRIENDSHIP. COMPROMISING. INNOVATION.
