Lego® Club is a social development program that teaches students how to work as a team to solve a problem.
Lego® Club provides a safe and inviting environment where youth can learn and practice independent social skills. This collaborative play theory was developed using Attwood’s concept of constructive application, which uses the youth’s interests to encourage learning and development. There is a large emphasis on peer modeling, and interaction, and less on strict adult instruction.
