LEGO Social Skills Program – Fall 2014
Do you love LEGOs and want to practice making friends and working collaboratively in a safe, structured, and FUN learning environment? Then, join our ‘LEGO Social Skills Club!’ For the first time ever, Kidizens is proud to offer a special class for children with social challenges who would benefit from explicit teaching about social skills and social thinking (kids who may have social delays, kids with ASD, or 2E kids). Like our traditional Kidizens program, they will plan and construct a city together in a specially adapted, cooperative learning program designed to also promote social learning and reinforce positive social behaviors, while leveraging many of the successful elements of our regular Kidizens program.
Over the course of the program, the kids will partner up to plan a component of our city and direct the class in building. In addition to being individually responsible for overseeing their special projects, kidizens will have many opportunities to hone their public speaking skills in a structured and non-threatening environment. Each session also will incorporate activities to foster emotional intelligence and help kidizens express themselves effectively. Join us, as a part of this Club, as we construct our self-designed city, build healthy social relationships, and of course, have tons of LEGO fun!
Please note that this program is meant to nurture project-based and group learning in a collaborative, fun, social environment for kids with social delays or challenges. We’re not a “therapy” program and not equipped to handle kids with any known history of violence and aggression.
