Autism Support UK - Voluntary community group are bringing Lego® based learning to Bolton.
A social communication group.
Developing social competence in young people.
Lego®-based learning is a social development group for young people with autism spectrum disorders or any social communication difficulties. Young people work together to build Lego® models and through this fun activity they have the opportunity to develop social skills such as turn taking, problem solving and social communication.
A fantastic way to socially interact. The group is structured and all children play a part - by having roles each week they will be supported to expand in social communication, problem solving, understanding and friendship skills.
Our Lego®-based group will provide Natural opportunities for developing social competence which are facilitated by experienced staff who have both experience in Autism and Lego® - based therapy practitioners.
The Key to this approach is how engaging and enjoyable it is for the learners. Building Lego® Together is great fun, and learners develop social skills while having a great time at our after school club.
