Lego®-based Therapy Paper
June Grindley, our Senior Autism Practioner, has written an educational article based on her research into Lego®-based Therapy.
Lego®-based Therapy Demonstration
This is a video of Lego®-based Therapy in action. The intervention was pioneered by Daniel B LeGoff after he saw two boys on the autistic spectrum interact over an interest in Lego. The video shows two ways to use it.
One-to-One Duplo Play Demonstration
In this video, we show how to adapt some principles of Lego®-based Therapy for use with pre-school children. June takes on the role of “Designer”, Catriona is the “Builder” and the role of “Supplier” is shared. In Lego®-based Therapy, the roles are clearly defined.
Pastel Play Demonstration
This shows a way of using pastel crayons to help people get in touch with their thoughts or feelings. The instructions are simple and non-threatening, helping the sketcher to make their own design.
Family Fund and the Power Up project
Salena Begley from Family Fund recently spoke at one of our Playschemes about the grants available to families. She discussed the Power Up project, which assists parents and carers with digital skills for money management, saving, and accessing benefits. You can find the PowerPoint slides from this talk here and a leaflet about their Power Up project here.
