Sharing Knowledge in LEGO® based therapy!

One of our missions at Bricks for Autism is to try and encourage people to do research into LEGO® therapy and to make research findings on LEGO®-based therapy more easily accessible.


We also love to hear from people who are carrying out research projects, no-matter how big or small, so let us know what you're doing, how we can help and whether you'd like us to share your project! Drop us an email at
