Thera-Build® with LEGO®

Thera-Build® is a LEGO®-based therapeutic approach for improving children’s emotional well-being.    Participation in Thera-Build® groups can help to boost self-esteem, support social development, build positive attachments and encourage purposeful conversation.

The methodology was developed by Alyson Thomsen, a former senior teacher and LEGO® Education Certified Trainer.  Aly continues to work with families, schools, charities and Trusts to provide quality commissioned projects for children, and also provides training for parents, carers and professionals.
