Lego Courses

We offer two different types of Lego courses for SENs and professionals that work with Special Needs children. ‘Using Lego to Develop Social & Emotional Skills’ is great for people who want to work more on a one-to-one basis with children and ‘Running Lego Construction Clubs for Students with ASD and Special Needs’ teaches aspects of how to work with children in groups, such as in Lego Clubs that can be created for Special Needs children.

A huge part of helping children access their potential is also by supporting teachers and educators with training in testing and special education so that they can better plan for and implement appropriate interventions for children.
