ACTS for Kids's Groups

Lego Social Skills Group

Lego therapy is an evidenced-based model of play therapy that has been shown to help children who have deficits in social skills. Led by a counselor, children form a team to complete structured activities of Lego building projects. Through these activities, children learn and practice skills related to communicating with others, expressing their feelings, developing problem-solving skills and developing a better relationship with the world around them. Lego therapy is appropriate for any child who has difficulties with social skills and has been shown to be highly effective with children who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum disorder. Age range 5-10 yr old.
