Enhance socio-communication skills
Practice following social rules such as turn-taking, sharing, understanding proposition, joint attention, taking other perspectives, verbal presentation skills, etc. through Lego playing activities.
There are a number of research studies that show that Lego therapy can effectively facilitate the social skills and communication of children with autism. (Andras, M., 2012; Lindsay, S., Hounsell, K. G., & Cassiani, C., 2017; Owens, G., Granader, Y., Humphrey, A., & Baron-Cohen, S., 2008; Ramalho NCP, Sarmento SMS, 2019). Children usually communicate and interact during their play. Lego particularly serves as a tool for children with ASD to generalize their social and communication skills during play.
