LEGO is a toy that is perfectly suited for individuals with special needs. It allows for creative, solitary play; it offers repetitive, stress-reducing movements that build motor skills, and it is a vehicle for social skill building and speech enhancement. In addition, LEGOs build an interest that individuals with a disability can share with their typical peers. And, LEGOs are fun! Today there are multiple practitioners as well as books and programs all focused on the many benefits of LEGO play.

By participating in the LEGO Club, individuals will:

  • Learn to engage with other participants in a positive way
  • Learn to take turns and accept guidance from a facilitator

  • Create lasting friendships with fellow builders
