What LEGO®-Based Therapy?

A scientifically-based social development program, utilising collaborative play therapy in which children
work together in small groups (2-3) to build LEGO models. The building process is divided into different
but interdependent roles, requiring interaction and communication (both verbal and non-verbal). The
Club is facilitated by provisional psychologists, under the supervision of a registered Clinical Psychologist,
and they will promote and coach collaboration, joint attention, joint accomplishment, division of labour,
sharing, turn-taking, eye-contact, gaze-following, verbal and non-verbal communication. Further, the club
provides natural opportunities for children to practice previously learned social skills. The LEGO® Club
also aims to build overall social adjustment and social motivation, as well as creating a social milieu among
peers with common difficulties and needs, to enhance identification with peers and motivation to
participate in joint achievement and collaboration. This structured program is offered over 7 weeks during
Term 3 of 2022.
