Since 2012 when we were one of the first to pilot LEGO® Build To Express we have had a strong and supportive relationship with LEGO® Education, developing the therapeutic use of this amazing set of special LEGO bricks. We called it Think Bricks! At Think Bricks Education we are passionate about delivering quality LEGO based SEMH intervention training and conference workshops to teachers and other education practitioners. When you book a training event with Think Bricks Education you know you will get full follow up support, an activities resource, and a LEGO Think Bricks resource kit. The evidence base for this fabulous intervention is proving that children and young people will open up and talk when they have built their thoughts, feelings, and ideas using this inspirational resource. At Think Bricks we believe that this powerful therapeutic approach gives children the support they need for positive mental well being. So they can become the best creative, reflective, active and collaborative learners they can be.
We have many LEGO education based ideas and workshops that can be adapted to suit a range of conference requirements. Early years, primary, secondary, therapeutic and LEGO serious play and adult staff wellbeing solutions.
"The Lego Bricks training with Think Bricks Education was brilliant. It enables keyworkers to empower and inspire children to communicate their thoughts and feelings..."
Oakfield Primary School, Cardiff.
" Your workshop on Monday has inspired so many of us! We started to use our kits on Tuesday morning and the Yr 2 children had a go at Building a 'New Years Resolution'. The results were amazing and there was such a 'buzz' in the classroom.
We are delighted and proud to have been chosen to present 'Building Miracles' at the United Kingdom Association of Solution Focused Practice (UKASFP) in Liverpool in June 2018. Combining LEGO building with Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
I have been successfully supporting schools as a Behaviour Support Service Lead/Advisory Teacher and Behaviour Consultant for over 20 years. Prior to this as a teacher I worked with children and young people with Social, Emotional,and Mental Health challenges in mainstream settings. Working to ensure inclusivity, achievement and attainment for all. I have a MEd in Special Education, specialising in social, emotional and behaviour difficulties. I am an experienced and passionate solution focused practitioner and Certified LEGO®education Academy Trainer specialising in providing quality training for teachers, teaching assistants, and other practitioners working to improve the teaching and learning and the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. I was priviledged to be the first local authority lead to pilot and develop the now evidence based intervention LEGO® 'Build To Express'.
On my courses I will share my experience and you will learn how to use and develop therapeutic approaches and to facilitate activities aimed at better communication and understanding of emotions for your children.
Nursery and Early Years Foundation Stage practitioners and teachers will be inspired to you use LEGO®Duplo to meet learning areas.
Staff teams will benefit from the hands on visual tool of LEGO Serious Play for well being, team building, thinking and planning, all in a really different and fun way.
