Lego Based Therapy is a child-led and peer based social skills group intervention that was initially developed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by Dr. Daniel LeGoff, a Clinical Neuropsychologist from Philadelphia, USA.
Nadia Ezzamel is an Educational Psychologist, with a particular interest in working with children and young people on the autism spectrum and promoting the social inclusion of children and young people with autism in mainstream school settings.
