What is Lego Club Intervention?
LEGO Club encourages collaborative play in which children work together as team to build Lego models in a structured environment. Members of the group have different but interdependent roles which necessitate interaction and work on a multitude of skills. Lego building increases interest in engaging with peers and building friendships. The aim is that the children will be encouraged to work together and can practice their social interaction skills whilst building a Lego model each week.
