Collaborative Play with LEGO for Children with  ASD & ADHD
September 26th  (7pm)
Collaborative Play, using Lego, is an effective form of therapy for children with a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties including depression, anxiety, aggression and social issues.
On this course you will learn lots of interesting things about Lego and its therapeutic nature, but you will also specifically learn about Collaborative Lego set building; Freestyle building; Brick Club Rules; Brick Club Points; Brick Club Levels and Certificates; and The Role of the Adult Facilitator, to name but a few.  
Having completed this course, facilitated by Edmond Scannell, you will be better able to:
  • Improve and sustain teaching and learning through play-based learning
  • Ensure teachers understand, appreciate and deploy a ‘Learning through Play’ methodology to classroom activities
  • Grow and cement concepts, skills and dispositions through play
  • Build key skills and confidence in the use of manipulatives for playful facilitation of curriculum, i.e. SSE and Wellbeing
  • Motivate, support and grow teachers to learn, understand and apply new approaches and methods across the broader integrated, skills curriculum
  • Provide teachers with the tools and support to confidently innovate and implement new approaches to learning in their classrooms
  • Have a positive influence on learner wellbeing achievement by enhancing lifelong learning skills for all learners using the Therapeutic Play principles, practices and pedagogy
  • Provide teachers with the skills to enhance children's physical, social and emotional literacy development
  • Develop the required skills of the future through practicing working collaboratively and creatively, whilst communicating clearly and thinking critically using Lego with Therapeutic Play
These skills will enable you to set up your own Lego Club, whether in school or after school and it will give you the confidence to run the club just the way it should.
