LEGO and autism therapy

A few months ago I shared on Twitter the following tweet. The tweet contains a link to an article on autism and special interests. You can read it here.

Does Lego count as a special interest?

Well I think so yes. Our son who is on the autism spectrum has been a massive fan since he was a toddler and so are many of his friends in his unit. I suspect that as well as improving motor skill it also is part of his sensory diet.

So how about you guys? Do you or a loved one find that LEGO helps or is just fun to play with?

If so please use the comments section below to add a few of your favorite LEGO creations.

Many thanks in advance!
