LEGO Club

PLEASE NOTE: The club is currently full but if you would like to join the waiting list, please see below.

Our monthly LEGO club runs (on the same Saturdays as our Family Youth Clubs) at Chandlers Ford Methodist Church from 2.00 to 3.15pm. We ask parents to remain on site during the activity, however we do offer a separate room for parents, where they can chat over a cup of tea, supported by one of our committee members.

Speech and language therapists, Jo (club leader) and Carolyn are ably assisted by local student volunteers.

We are applying the Lego Therapy framework. LEGO Therapy involves building LEGO models in small groups or pairs where the children take on different roles and work together. The children are encouraged to practice turn taking, sharing, joint problem solving and general social communication skills.

 

The Club started with a small ‘pilot’ group so that we could evaluate this activity. From September 2015 we extended the age-range from 8 to 13 and increased the places available.

The cost per session is £2.50 per child. Each session will build on the previous one, so it is essential that the children attend regularly.

To express an interest in your child joining the waiting list for this club, please complete this form and return to us. PLEASE NOTE: We have been advised that, unfortunately, this type of therapy is not successful with children who have an ADHD or PDA diagnosis.

We are most grateful to Jo, Carolyn, and our student volunteers for offering their services and to Sarah-Jane Eades who made a very generous donation, in memory of her late mother, which enabled us to purchase a quantity of LEGO and get this activity underway.





The South Hampshire Branch is a self-funded branch of the National Autistic Society and run entirely by volunteers.
