Melbourne LEGO Trailer Build – 19th & 20 Nov 2011

ASD Aid has organized another event to raise awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorders and the benefits of play therapy at Melbourne  Museum’s  Science Works.

Join the Melbourne LEGO Users Group (MUGs) and hundreds of LEGO Fans  in an attempt to build a large scale moving LEGO road train, and learn about the benefits of LEGO Therapy for kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

“Help build a series of trailers before letting your imagination run wild in building the cargo for the train to haul. Once completed, the trailers will form one giant road train, which will then be pulled by LEGO prime movers.”

Research indicates that significant gains can be made in social development through LEGO play. The interactive experience of play groups are believed to help improve the social skills of children with ASD.

This event is held in partnership with the Melbourne LEGO Users Group (MUGs), Amaze ( Autism Victoria) and the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre.

The event has been made possible by the generous contributions of ASD Aid members and major sponsor Fischer Plastics.
