Lego Club is an evidence based approach that aims to develop social communication skills in autistic children, such as sharing, turn-taking, following rules, using names and problem-solving.
The intervention is carried out between 3-4 times per week at Phoenix. Children work together and are assigned roles – the engineer who has the instructions, the supplier who has the bricks, and the builder who puts the model together. The children take turns in assuming each responsibility. This method encourages collaboration and interaction with other children and is suitable for most age groups as it can be easily modified depending on specific needs and interests.
