Bricks 4 ASD Kids
Friday Afternoon LEGO® Club
Our Friday Afternoon LEGO® Club is specially designed for high functioning kids on the spectrum. It is designed to create a fun, social environment which encourages kids to collaborate and communicate while working towards a common goal. We will provide a structured environment, where kids are encouraged to participate in the activities, however there will be no pressure.
The goals of the program are:
- Build Social skills
- Improve confidence
- Improve problem solving skills
- Improve teamwork
- Help kids initiate social interaction
- Improve fine Motor skills
Term 4 Workshops are currently on hold while we reassess our approach. For up to date information on new release programs specifically for kids on the spectrum please subscribe to our Bricks 4 ASD Kidz Mailing list HERE.
About the Program
This program is designed for kids aged from 6 years and up to 18+ years old provided they meet the student requirements.
All Staff are working with Children checked and have experience working with Autistic kids in similar environments. While activities in BRICKS 4 KIDZ® workshops with LEGO® Bricks are very safe, we place a very high focus on child welfare – at least one staff member at every one of our activities will have a valid First Aid certificate.
Kids attending are required to be high functioning and have the ability to self regulate behaviour. Parents will be required to stay at the workshop for the duration of the first few programs to ensure kids are able to cope in the environment. All kids will need to have completed student information forms prior to attending the workshop.
Our expectations are simple – kids are expected to be Safe, Respectful and Responsible while attending our workshops.
Bricks 4 Kidz staff will do their best to manage kids behaviour at the workshop, however parents will be required to manage any serious behavioural issues while kids are attending the workshops.
Our Workshops are limited to 24 kids unless otherwise stated.
The Fee is $15 per week. Payment can be made online upon registration or at the door. It is important to register for each night so that we can ensure we have appropriate staff and resources.
All transactions are processed in Australian dollars (AUD).
