About LEGO® Brick Club...

LEGO® Brick Club therapy is a creative and effective evidence-based intervention that harnesses the universal appeal of Lego bricks to support the social and emotional well-being of children and adolescents.


During each session participants are assigned different roles within a group, such as "builder," "engineer," and "supplier," each with specific responsibilities. They then work together to build a Lego model based on a set of instructions or a theme, practicing skills like turn-taking, sharing, collaboration, problem-solving, and verbal communication.

LEGO® Brick Club therapy can be highly beneficial for children with ASD, children with other neurodevelopmental conditions and those with other social communication difficulties, as it provides a structured and engaging environment for them to develop essential social skills while having fun. It can also help improve self-esteem, confidence, and emotional regulation.

​Why Choose LEGO® Brick Club?

Lego® Based Therapy was developed in the early 2000s by Dan Legoff, a clinical neuropsychologist in the United States. Legoff noticed that many children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) were more interested in interacting with each other if they were playing with Lego®. He set up groups for children with ASD to learn social skills while playing collaboratively with Lego®.

Through LEGO® Based Therapy, children learn to communicate, express their feelings, learn various ways of relating to others, modify their behaviour and develop problem-solving skills. 


The LEGO® System is a highly organised, systematic, and predictable toy, therefore highly motivating for children as the unpredictable and ever-changing concepts that occur during other types of free play do not exist. This very nature of the LEGO building system allows children to feel calm, regulated and engaged.

Frequently Asked Questions


Where is the group held? We have a range of therapy locations in Bendigo, location will be confirmed prior to program commencement.

How do I pay? All group sessions are paid in advance, however if this is not possible we will work with you to find the most suitable solution.

What happens if I miss one of the sessions? All group programs are designed so that a session can be missed without hindering future sessions. However, if you are unable to attend, we do appreciate 24 hours notice so that the facilitator can plan accordingly. Unfortunately we cannot provide a refund for missed group sessions.

Do parents need to stay? No. Our facilitators are very experienced with helping children transition. If a child is particularly anxious then a parent is welcome to help their child transition into the room. Once you have left, we will be sure let you know if your child is still not settling in well though in most cases this is not required as they soon get into the fun and games of the session! Please return and wait outside 5 minutes before the end of the session to allow for a smooth transition out of the clinic. 

What do I need to bring? No need to bring anything! All resources for the group program will be provided by The Social Learning Collective. Children are welcome to bring a water bottle into the therapy room.

Do you provide outcome reports for NDIS purposes? Yes. If you would like a report for NDIS purposes, please inform the program facilitator prior to program completion.
