Teaching Social Skills with Lego©
Kids love Lego, so why not build social skills through something they are passionate about! As an extension of the work of Dr. Daniel Legoff, Ph.D., Lego Social Skills Instruction allows each child to learn new skills within a structured framework. Through the three person collaborative groupings, or triads, children with social difficulties will learn skills such as, working together, communicating effectively with others, maintaining eye contact, solving problems, establishing friendships, and managing anger. By identifying with and feeling accepted by a peer group the members build their self-confidence without always recognizing the “work” they’ve put in. The specific goals targeted for each individual will depend upon the information provided in the application process.
