Lego therapy is used to help children learn skills like turn-taking, sharing, listening, conversation, teamwork, shared attention and problem-solving.  Lego therapy was designed for those with a diagnosis of an Autistic Spectrum Condition but our aim is to offer it to a broader range of our students as Lego building is often a highly motivating activity for many students at Birch Wood who would also benefit from developing their social and communication skills.  Lego therapy is offered to groups of 3, and each student will rotate through the 3 different roles that are required to build a lego model using the lego therapy framework.

We have staff who have been trained in lego therapy at all 3 Birch Wood sites and this is offered to students who have been requested for this intervention as part of their timetable.
