New Zealand's only licensed trainer in the Brick-by-Brick programme (formerly known as LEGO-based therapy), Dr Camilla Nguyen is offering professionals the opportunity to be trained facilitators in the Brick-by-Brick programme.

The Brick-by-Brick programme is an evidence-based social skills programme for individuals on the autism spectrum and related social skills difficulties. The programme 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 Play Included, endorsed by Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge and the LEGO foundation, and have access to downloadable resources to set up their own Brick Clubs.

Dr. Camilla Nguyen is a specialist Child & Adolescent Clinical Psychologist who works clinically with children and adults with autism spectrum and runs Brick Clubs in 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 the Brick-by-By programme and other autism workshops in New Zealand.
