Lego Therapy: As Good As It Sounds

(Photo courtesy
Yes, you read correctly.  There is actually Lego therapy and after reading more, I'm completely convinced it's a legit thing.  First of all, I got all of this amazing info from The Friendship Circle Blog.  It was so amazing, I just have to share.

How Lego Therapy Can Help Those With Special Needs:

There are Lego therapy groups popping up in all parts of the world.  Even more amazing is that medical researchers around the globe have determined that Lego therapy is the real deal and can actually help reinforce play skills and develop social skills such as:
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication 
  • Joint attention 
  • Task focus 
  • Sharing and turn-taking
  • Collaborative problem solving
Sounds like a winning idea to me!  There are 5 designated steps to achieving the most out of Lego therapy.  Please click over to The Friendship Circle Blog blog to learn more.  Make sure you come back to comment and let us know what you think.

Leslie grew up with LEGOs and an older brother, which meant he always got to the best pieces (usually the bigger ones) first.
