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