Reviews

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 *
