Abstract:   (535 Views)
   Background and Aim: Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) involve myriad aberrant perceptual, cognitive, linguistic and social behaviors. Lego therapy is one intervention that has been shown to encourage significant improvement in the social skills of children with autism spectrum disorder and reducing their autistic-type social behaviors. The definition of the Danish word Lego is to play well. Lego therapy is a social development program for children of autism spectrum, which is based on collaborative Lego play.
   Conclusion: Many children with ASD lack communicative intent and desire to communicate for social purposes. Lego therapy uses play to develop social competency by creating opportunities to interact. Children work together to build Lego models in pairs or teams of three. It is argued that as a result, participants experience a greater motivation to initiate social contact and engage in sustained interactions with others. In this article investigated theoretical base, application, implementation levels and effectiveness of Lego therapy.
