Our LEGO® Therapy courses have 4 roles: The Architect, The Supplier, The Builder and The Director. All roles are clearly explained to each child at the start of the course. The collaborative teamwork encourages joint focus, sharing, communication, problem solving and reinforces positive behaviour and social contact.
In Lego therapy, adults run a structured group where children work in teams of 3 to build a Lego model and each child has a particular role (please see below). Lego therapy can also be adapted to work on language targets, so it can work really well as an intervention for children with Speech, Language, and Communication Needs (SLCN). 1.

The authors stated that LEGO – based therapy is a promising intervention with an emerging evidence base for effectiveness, but that research studies are small scale and poorly controlled. The wide range of outcome measures and poor description of study participants makes it difficult to compare findings across studies.
They are building their spatial abilities — the ability to visualize and plan three-dimensional objects. Numerous studies have shown that kids show improvement on spatial reasoning tests after spending time with LEGO Bricks and other kinds of construction play.
