Confidently deliver your
first Lego® based Therapy in 8-12 weeks

and become outstanding in teaching social communication without the raging overwhelm, crippling timing hangups and nightmarish:

“what-do-I-do”

“how-do-I-structure-it”

“when-I-will-find-time-to-create -resources”

“how-to- meet- the- needs- of- SEND -students”

“how-to-help -children- to- remain -calm -and -focused”

“how-do-I-model-students-behavioural-and-emotional-responses”

So, if you’re a Special Educational Needs Coordinator, teacher, teaching assistant looking to help children while improving communication, social skills and improve their behavioural and emotional responses then you already know that you need a lot of time to: plan, make and organise the resources, assess, evaluate ,etc

So, I’ll spare you the spiel.

After all, you probably already KNOW that creating and delivering a successful interventions is the key tipping point that will allow you to leverage your time, impact more children and move your school special needs provision to the next level.

You’ve probably also heard that the Lego® based Therapy is one of the most engaging, motivating and effective way that significantly improves children social skills.

Here's what you MIGHT NOT KNOW

Even though you’re lucky enough to run different social communication interventions, running Lego® based Therapy interventions can:

Generate consistency across your school

So all staff can follow this step by step, easy to follow eight weeks framework which will give you a lot of flexibility to who should deliver the intervention, how many therapy groups you may have so no child is left out!

Saves you a huge bags of precious time

As it’s supplies you with all the necessary: planning, schedules, visuals, games, etc. so you can focus on teaching!

Road-map what to teach

List of possible skills to teach in a form of assessment allows therapists to stay in control of the teaching, assess and target deficit skills. Also, the assessment gives the directions on how to evaluate your sessions.

Meets the needs of SEND students

This structured, cooperative play will help all children and some groups would benefit greatly from it such as: children with Autism, Asperger Syndrome, learning difficulties, anxiety disorders, Pathological Avoidance Disorder. English as an Additional Language, children who experienced childhood abuse, social isolation and physical and sensory disabilities, and challenging behaviour.

Connect with pupils through this well taught play therapy

Lego® based Therapy has been proven to be effective with children and young people with a range of special needs.

Starting your Lego® based Therapy intervention? AWESOME!

But where the heck do I start?

Perhaps in your most courageous moments you’ve made the commitment to start. You’ve jotted ideas down in your notebook, research through the internet for ideas, maybe outlined a few lessons.

If you’re super committed maybe you even invested in some type of planning or resources, spending ages for preparation, assuring yourself that you’d use it in the mystical, yet illusive, someday.

If you supper, supper committed maybe you are running your interventions for short time of the school year dreaming of delivering across the school to all children.

Even with the best intentions most facilitators end up abandoning the idea of supporting children social communication allowing special needs children to develop and imprint inappropriate social skills, negative ways of communicating and decrease children chances of being independent, successful and happy as an adults.

MOVING ON!

Here's why most would-be interventions facilitators abandon the project.

Without a super clear step-by-step lessons plan most would-be intervention facilitators get completely lost.

They fall victim to paralysing planning and resources hang ups, a time-sucking sticking point, on lack of clarity over exactly what children need to taught. Here’s why this is irreversibly crippling. As an already busy educator with so many children to help, plenty of other duties to fulfil, and maybe even time consuming, constant dealing with the challenging behaviour it’s the reason that you can’t afford to veer off course.

The moment you get lost in your everyday duties it’s almost impossible to recover. Therefore, delivering Lego based Therapy interventions is one of the few things in your school you need to get right the first time.

Luckily for you there are actually very few schools out there doing it right. In all likelihood others have either failed in Lego based Therapy delivery or created something ineffective that nobody is benefiting from.

Avoid Mistakes Other Educators Make!

That means that even if you’re late to the party there is still a golden opportunity for you to jump in, clean up the mess, and improve your special needs provision.

That is if you can avoid the same deadly intervention creation mistakes other schools are making.

That’s where we get to alchemy, all of those challenges and all that struggle into their biggest opportunity in a way that feels good and empowering. That’s your moment of highest pleasure and your moment of highest tension. Taken together you will have established the gap and moved your prospect one step closer towards the final delivery of your Lego based Therapy.

THE 4 REASONS MOST SCHOOLS FLOP

(and how to guarantee you won't)

Understanding of what to teach (or worse not assessing, not targeting, not evaluating and not controlling the progress)

Running a successful Lego® based Therapy isn’t particularly hard or complicated but there are so many moving pieces and potential failure points along the way. What assessment tool to use, what skills to teach, how to motivate and engage children. How to prioritise which skills to target and how to evaluate effectiveness of the intervention. These are just some of the many questions you’ll have to answer along the way.

Most facilitators approach their interventions delivery  without  clear whole school approach to it. That’s the habits we’re destructing. But the thing is you can’t teach social communication without the complete road map. It’s an immensely valuable and important part of the school special needs and behaviour provision and when done right from the beginning, can change lives of your most valuable children in your setting.

Importance of social communication skills (or worse lack of knowledge and training on how to teach communication and social skills for special needs children)

Teaching positive communication and social skills through Lego based Therapy isn’t hard but when done without appropriate knowledge and training, potentially can create more unwanted social habits and challenging behaviour. Understanding social skills and positive communication as well as possessing the right skills to teach them, these are some of the many skills you have are going to have. Most facilitators deliver Lego based Therapy without clear instructions on how to teach them but also they are lacking with basic understanding of child condition and needs.

But the thing is that if you can’t teach anyone without following good practice guidelines  and knowledge about the children you support.

Importance of delivering structured, well planned therapy sessions (or worse no routine, no rules, chaotic sessions, lack of control and dealing with challenging behaviour)

Teaching children with autism or other communication difficulties isn’t always easy but it’s extremely rewarding if delivered correctly. Many schools deliver their interventions without creating safe and predictable environment in a form of routine, rules and structure.

In fact, if you managed to deliver on these factors your children will feel safe and you will decree the level of child’s anxiety . They will be able to trust you and relax during the sessions which means they are more likely to learn quicker and you will not waste your time to deal with the challenging behaviour.

By following a-z planning with necessary resources saves your precious time and reduce your stress , allowing you to enjoy the whole teaching sessions.

Understanding the importance of adaptation, individualisation and differentiation (or worse teaching too complex skills, too easy skills, too many skills at a time without dividing them into smaller steps)

Successful teaching social communication require plenty of preparation in form of schedules and visuals to help children to be successful in everything they do. Many facilitators try to teach without considering child interests or needs which are the main barriers to not progressing. Many unsuccessful therapy sessions are not differentiated appropriately and it’s a huge challenge for a child to learn complex social concepts. That’s the habits that we’re destructing.

Even though every Special Educational Needs Coordinator, teacher, teaching assistant, occupation therapist, speech and language therapist or parent talk a lot about the need to deliver social communication intervention – it’s doesn’t mean they provide decent help for children.

Only few schools will get this right, while many other fizzle out.

But as long as you can avoid the biggest blunders that sink most would-be exceptional facilitators.
