In summer 2017, Child and Family Development offers a sensory-language social skills group built around LEGO® fun!

Sessions are co-led by a Speech Therapist and an Occupational Therapist.

The program is based on a LEGO¬Æ curriculum as well as LEGO¬Æ- Based Therapy: How to build social competence through LEGO¬Æ-based clubs for children with autism and other related conditions by Daniel LeGoff, Gina Gomez de la Cuesta, GW Krauss and Simon Baron-Cohen.  Main topics are:

  • WHOLE BODY LISTENING
  • BUILDING WITH A GROUP
  • READING & SHOWING EMOTIONS
  • GIVING & RECEIVING DIRECTIONS

Our group is open to all children who are verbal and can follow simple multi-step directions. A diagnosis is not required nor restricted to participation. 

At the end of the week, kids will go home with a special toy to be enjoyed!

SCHEDULING

Each child is screened by a therapist before being placed into a group. The groups are formed based on each child‚Äôs communication skills, social ability and age. To participate, a child must be able to follow basic Lego directions independently or with minimal help. 

The group meets for four 50-minute sessions, Monday-Thursday at the Pineville office.  Based on interest, there will be up to 4 groups:

  • GROUP #1: July 24-July 27 from 11-12
  • GROUP #2: July 24-July 27 from 1-2
  • GROUP #3: July 31-August 3 from 11-12
  • GROUP #4: July 31-August 3 from 1-2

COST

The cost is $220.00. All LEGO® materials are included. Payment is due at the time of registration.
