Inclusive, fun and interactive lego based play centered sessions for all children with a focus on autism, ADHD or children who struggle with social interaction or lack self esteem. Build, create and make friendships.
I am a mum of 3 children, one of whom has SEN and I have worked with children and families for over 25 years. I decided to set up my own business 2 years ago to do something that I feel passionate about and that is building up children’s self esteem and confidence by providing an environment where they can feel safe, to express themselves and be creative and support them, especially for those that have to face challenges in their young lives, struggle with social interaction, have SEN or simply for children that enjoy quieter activities and have a love for Lego. Lego is a lot more than just building blocks, there are so many benefits such as: developing problem solving and mathematical thinking, develops persistence, promotes fine motor skills, encourages team work, improves creativity, communication and listening skills, self esteem and helps to develop lateral thinking and planning skills 🙂
I also welcome volunteers and paid staff age 18-25yrs with SEN to join my Team to enable them to build on their confidence in a working environment, all that is required is to have a love of lego and enjoy working with children. if anyone is interested in further information please do contact me.
In March I launched BRICKS Lego parties which caters for all Lego loving children and each party is tailored to the individual needs and likes of the party child. I also run exclusive SEN parties where I will come to meet the family and child, provide a story board of what your child would like and ensure I understand each child’s needs to provide them a wonderful day
I also run Lego sessions for community groups, half and full day workshops for primary schools and community events 🙂
As well as being known as the ‘Lego Lady’, I also run a variety of 2hr workshops and 4 week courses for parents/carers/professionals on a wide range of family related topics such as : understanding the teenage brain, understanding boys, managing anger, parenting puzzle, how to support my child with autism and so many more
Mental Well being is so important to me after losing 5 male members to suicide and I am trained with the OLLIE foundation in ASSIST – suicide intervention
Does this sound like you?
You’re lying awake at night feeling bad that you’re not being the kind of parent you want to be;
You wake up in the morning with a lump in your throat, wondering when the whining/screaming/squabbling will start;
Your child has a volcanic temper and you’re worried about what might happen in their future if you don’t get help now;
You’ve tried methods like time-out, consequences and reward systems but but nothing has worked and you just feel confused and miserable;
The worst is that you fear that your relationship with your child is broken – and you’ve no idea how to rescue it.
If any of the above are true for you,
you’re in the right place.
It’s not your fault and it definitely does not mean you’re a bad parent. I come across this all the time in my work with clients.
And I know what it’s like to feel stuck in negative behaviour patterns myself.
And I have a solution for you.
