"Tweens" Lego & Games Club

 

Does your child enjoy building with Legos?

Would they benefit from improving their social skills in a fun & relaxed environment?

Explore social learning through Legos and come build with us!

 

Whether on a sports team or working on a science project in class, specific skills are required to be part of a group activity.  Being a successful team player requires the ability to negotiate, manage frustration, maintain a proper tone of voice and volume level, resolve conflicts, make suggestions, accept the suggestions of others, and develop solutions to problems.

Research has shown that significant gains can be made in social development through Lego play therapy.  Group Lego building provides a medium through which children with social and communication disadvantages can be taught to interact effectively.  Sessions will focus on helping small groups of children work together to build Lego models, take part in building challenges, and play games.

 

During Lego Club's cooperative activities, we will focus on teaching the appropriate social language and interpersonal skills necessary to facilitate friendships and successfully communicate with others.

The Lego Club will target the following skills -


 Confidence Building

Listening Comprehension

Collaborative Problem Solving

Critical Thinking

Direction Following

Conversation

Joint Attention and Task Focus

Verbal and Nonverbal Communication

Game Play Skills

 

The Club is open to children ages 10 to 12

Cost is $65 for a sixty minute session
