Brick by Brick programme training (formerly LEGO based therapy) for professionals

The Brick by Brick programme (formerly known as LEGO-based therapy) is an evidence-based social skills programme for individuals on the autism spectrum and related social skills difficulties. The Brick by Brick programme is highly structured and uses children’s own natural interests in LEGO to promote development of social communication and play. This training is suitable for psychologists, teachers, RTLBs, social workers, counsellors, play therapists, SLTs, OTs and other professionals who work with individuals on the autism spectrum or related social difficulties. Upon completion of this one day workshop delegates will be accredited by Play Included, endorsed by Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge, and have access to downloadable resources to set up their own Brick Clubs. Play Included is a LEGO foundation partner. Dr. Camilla Nguyen is a specialist Child & Adolescent Clinical Psychologist who runs Brick by Brick programme with children across Auckland. She is the only certified trainer in the Brick by Brick programme in New Zealand. She has researched and collaborated with the pioneers of LEGO-based therapy Professor Simon Baron-Cohen and Dr Gina Gomez la Cuesta, as well as delivered extensive training to professionals in the Brick by Brick programme in New Zealand and overseas.
