Course description

Lego-based therapy (LeGoff et al 2014) is an evidence-based approach that aims to develop social communication sklls such as sharing, turn-taking, following rules, using names and problem-solving.


In practice, children work in groups of three with each participant having a distinct role to build a Lego model collaboratively:



  • Engineers use the Lego instructions and ask the Supplier for the specific pieces of Lego needed

  • Suppliers give the Builder the pieces

  • Builders follow the building instructions from the Engineer in order to construct the model


This practical course outlines how to run a lego-based therapy session in your school.

Training objectives

By the end of the course delegates will:



  • Understand the fundamentals of Lego Therapy

  • Having an understanding of how to run a Lego-therapy session in their school

  • Digital resources will be provided
