Autism Okanagan held their first Lego program in the fall of 2019, thanks to a generous grant from Telus. Our Lego program is focused around building social skills, connecting with peers, and of course, a love of all things LEGO!
Younger participants had the opportunity to work in groups to build Lego sets and to learn to work in teams to complete the sets together. This model proved to be very successful, as we saw participants working together and learning to communicate in order to achieve their building goals.
The second part of our Lego program was focused on Lego robotics, where kids were able to build and code their own Lego robots, which was a whole lot of fun for everyone!
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic our Lego program has had to be put on hold. We are hopeful that we will be able to start the Lego program again sometime in 2021.
