Why LEGO (R)-based therapy works and what it looks like in action
Daniel B. LeGoff is a licensed pediatric neuropsychologist, and the pioneer of LEGO (R) Therapy. A psychology graduate of the University of Winnipeg, Canada, Dr LeGoff received Master's and Doctorate degrees in clinical psychology from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia. He then completed residency and post-doctoral training at Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago, and the Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu. He specializes in the assessment and treatment of neurodevelopmental and neurobehavioral conditions in infants, children, and adolescents.
Daniel B. LeGoff, the inventor of LEGO (R)-Based Therapy, has provided a colourful set of case studies to help teachers and clinicians get a real feel for how to implement this playful and non-stigmatising intervention with kids with autism. LEGO (R)-Based Therapy harnesses their strong drive to systemise to help them learn how to socialise. It is also intrinsically rewarding for such kids. As such, it is a pleasurable experience for both the therapist and the child. -- Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Director, Autism Research Centre, Cambridge University, UK It honestly didn't feel like I was reading an educational book, it's written so beautifully that its almost like reading a novel. I was enthralled with the case studies that give examples of children taking part in the therapy. Daniel LeGoff has a wonderful way of re-telling his sessions-that makes you feel like you're there in his office with him from the moment the child starts their therapy... I loved that this book was heavily supported by it's large number of case studies; that form an integral part of the book. It makes the book relatable and real. -- senresourcesblog.com * senresourcesblog.com *
