      Lego Therapy

      This workshop is two fold - to help adults in the care of a child or children communicate with them more effectively and then also to help engage children in a group to encourage their own social confidence - it is a practical workshop focusing on the art of communication. As a LEGO based therapist I’ve utilised LEGO based therapy as an intensive intervention for a few years now - this training uses this as it’s principle and offers parents / carers the insight into an alternative, fun method of communication with their child. We will use LEGO to practically show some basic skills of engaging child and how to enable a child to communicate through LEGO - in this new therapeutic manner and then we will look at how we adapt these skills and transfer them into the social arena to help a child grow in confidence in areas such as social interaction I.e. making friends / creating conversation and asking questions. The Empower project is a Big Lottery funded initiative through the Reaching Out Supporting Families Programme  which support Families across Mid Ulster and Antrim & Newtownabbey Council areas.  The focus of the project is to support children under 12 with Autism, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia, their parents and the wider family circle to enhance confidence and learn together to develop skills to support their children.
