Participants will first learn the expectations of the LEGO® Group, practice basic building, and work on language skills in a small group session. Next, participants are introduced to a larger group of peers, including trained Peer Coaches (who are guided by trained social skills specialists clinicians). We have the option of peer-run or facilitator-run groups!
The group meets on a weekly basis for 60-90~ minutes (depending on age) and during that time participants engage in collaborative LEGO® building activities and other projects, tailored to the skill level. Different roles and job descriptions are assigned to group members. Typically these roles are Director, Engineer, Supplier, and Builder.
Fundraising is also part of this self-directed program. The participants will be instructed how to create their own Go-Fund-Me page and will be guided in sponsoring a small, participant-run event to raise money to pay for the program. The fundraiser is held during the weekend after the first session!
