New Zealand and Australia's only licensed Bricks for Autism trainer, Dr. Camilla Nguyen of Building Minds Psychology, is offering professionals the opportunity to become accredited in Lego-based therapy.

LEGO-based therapy is an evidence-based social skills programme for individuals on the autism spectrum and related social skills difficulties. LEGO-based therapy is highly structured and uses children’s own natural interests in LEGO to promote development of social communication and play.

This training is suitable for psychologists, teachers, RTLBs, social workers, counsellors, play therapists, SLTs, OTs and other professionals who work with individuals on the autism spectrum or related social difficulties. Upon completion of this one day workshop delegates will be accredited by Bricks for Autism, endorsed by Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge, and have access to downloadable resources to set up their own LEGO-based therapy groups.

Dr. Camilla Nguyen is a specialist Child & Adolescent Clinical Psychologist who runs LEGO-based therapy groups with children across Auckland. She has researched and collaborated with the pioneers of LEGO- based therapy Professor Simon Baron-Cohen and Dr Gina Gomez la Cuesta, as well as delivered extensive training to professionals in Lego-based therapy in New Zealand and overseas.

Early bird pricing is available at $210 +GST (expires one month before the training date), Standard price $240 +GST. Student pricing is also offered at $180+GST.
