We are excited to announce the introduction of LEGO Therapy as part of the wide range of CPotential services.
LEGO Therapy is an evidence-based intervention supporting language and communication development and many aspects of social skills using LEGO activities.
It was first developed in the mid-1990s by US paediatric neuropsychologist Daniel LeGoff, and can benefit children and adults with a variety of communication and social developmental difficulties.
At CPotential, we use LEGO Therapy not only to develop social communication skills but also fine motor skills and coordination. We have a wide range of blocks to suit children with physical disabilities or complex fine motor skill manipulation difficulties. Our Occupational Therapist advises on appropriate resources and fine motor manipulation strategies when necessary.
LEGO Therapy brings plenty of benefits for children and young people, such as;
- Social interactions – improves understanding of turn-taking, and teamwork, increases confidence in social situations, and overall social skills
- Language and communication – improves communication and interaction, increases vocabulary, instructional language, correct use of prepositions, and listening skills
- Cognition and learning – reinforces knowledge of shapes and colours, counting, sequencing, fosters creative thinking and problem solving, improves focus and concentration
- Motor skills and coordination – improves motor skills and general coordination skills
- Mental health – increases confidence and self-esteem, and lowers anxiety and stress.
We look forward to seeing all of the wonderful building projects soon!
