Course Description

Construction clubs that use Lego® based therapy are not Lego® building clubs, they are clubs that are run under strict rules with trained facilitators which are designed to improve the social and communication skills of children with autism and other related conditions. This self paced course has been designed and written by experienced child psychologists. It's intended to be a complete user manual and toolkit for any school teacher or professional looking to setup and run effective Lego® Based therapy construction clubs in their school or practice. The course starts with the very foundations of what autism and what Lego® based therapy is and guides users through how to begin setting up their new constructions clubs - what they need, what they don't need, how to assess suitability to your club, how many people you will need, how to monitor progress, how to monitor students, how to set up timetables and agendas and so on. The course is packed full of useful resources and downloadables that can be taken and used in your own construction clubs. Construction clubs evolve over time so you have 12 months access to this course enabling you to dip in and out for more information as you need it. The course is updated with new resources and information as needed.
