Thank you for this clear and concise Lego Therapy Training. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. It was easy for me to understand and I enjoyed the good mixture of visual and audio accessibility, as well as the written content. As a dyslexic person, I appreciated the audio on each page to talk through the content. The audio, was again, clear and concise, which made the course inclusive and accessible for myself. The free downloadable resources at the end are fantastic and I will be using them alongside symbols for my individuals.

The training today was really useful. The resources will be helpful as we found out today how difficult it can be to get the language right when we are describing the bricks. We thoroughly enjoyed it as adults so I can only imagine how much fun the children will have when taking part. It will help the targeted children to use their fine motor skills and better use of language when speaking and listening.
