Students Working on Legos

Life Skills And Autistic Support Students Building Skills In A Variety Of Ways

Students in our life skills and autism support classrooms have been hard at work engaging in “Lego Therapy” during their speech therapy sessions. Made possible by a generous donor from “Donors Choose”, our students have been enthusiastic for this opportunity to work on their language skills in a functional way. They are assigned different roles (i.e. engineer, builder, supplier) and are responsible for the jobs needed to complete the project, as they would be at a work site. It has been wonderful watching them take this team-based approach. Though it has certainly been challenging to work with legos in this very different way, the students have done an excellent job turn-taking, negotiating, collaborating, and effectively communicating to get the job done! We are hoping to have the 4,000 piece "Home Alone" house completed and on display at our annual Christmas party in December.  Click the "More+" Link For Gallery
