LEGO-Based Therapy Facilitator Training workshop for those on the Autism Spectrum - Wellington

This workshop is ideal for people working with individuals on the autism spectrum who want to set up and facilitate LEGO-Based Therapy groups.

Developed by Daniel Le-Goff and Simon Baron- Cohen, LEGO-Based Therapy has been successfully replicated across the world and fits well into the New Zealand and Australian context. It is an excellent therapy model for clinicians and professionals with existing skills and knowledge in group theory, clinical reasoning and Autism.

The facilitator Elen Nathan will introduce delegates to the background of LEGO-Based Therapy and how to run LEGO-Based Therapy for individuals on the autism spectrum. Importance is placed on hands on practice and the adult facilitator’s role in LEGO-Based Therapy. Step-by-step instructions on how to run successful groups in order to promote social skills and collaborative play through a naturalistic setting will be provided. Printable resources will also be provided so delegates can start running LEGO-Based Therapy groups after completing the workshop.

It is an excellent therapy model for clinicians and professionals with existing skills and knowledge in group theory, clinical reasoning and Autism, including Psychologists, Counsellors, Teachers, Speech and Language Therapists, clinical and allied staff, teaching assistants, key workers, SENCOs, occupational therapists.

A free LEGO kit is included as part of your registration. Through the generous support from The Warehouse, each attendee will receive their own LEGO kit to use on the day and take home with them. In addition, they have offered all who attend the workshop a significant discount to set up their school or organisation's own workshop kit. We encourage you to take advantage of this offer.
