Praise for LEGO®-Based Therapy: How to build social competence through LEGO®-based clubs for children with autism and related conditions
The book, LEGO-Based Therapy is available from booksellers everywhere. You can find it on Amazon or at Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
‘The best kind of therapy is when it’s so much fun that the child doesn’t know it’s happening. LEGO®-Based Therapy fits that bill. The authors have left no stone unturned in developing a systematic social intervention. They provide a comprehensive, step-by-step program with documented improvements in social competence.’
— Lynn Koegel, PhD, Clinical Director, Koegel Autism Center, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA
‘Everyone loves LEGO® – including children on the autism spectrum. But did you know that through playing with LEGO® in a social setting you can draw out autistic children’s hidden ability to cooperate with others? Here is a practical guide to making players come together and create together by the sheer magic of LEGO®.’
— Professor Uta Frith, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London
