Thera-Build® is a LEGO®-based therapeutic approach for improving children’s emotional well-being. Participation in Thera-Build® groups can help to boost self-esteem, support social development, build positive attachments and encourage purposeful conversation.
The methodology was developed by Alyson Thomsen, a former senior teacher and LEGO® Education Certified Trainer. Aly continues to work with families, schools, charities and Trusts to provide quality commissioned projects for children, and also provides training for parents, carers and professionals.
