Book this course

Course Summary

Block-based Therapy training is delivered online via  Zoom, depending on the size of the group.  It gives you the key knowledge, skills, structure, and resources to effectively run Block-based therapy sessions with young people.

This training has been written by Emma Griffiths – an Autism Consultant and Director of NW Autism & SEND and is becoming the new breakout training that is becoming increasingly popular for both staff that work with children with neurodiverse related conditions and parents of these children.

Block Therapy was originally designed for autistic children with social and communication skills, it has been found to be beneficial to a much wider variety of young people with similar challenges.  The online one day course offers a safe and timely alternative, at a reduced cost.

How much does the course cost?

  • The total cost is £250 + VAT per individual delegate!
  • SPECIAL OFFER: £100 + VAT for a second delegate from the same venue (sharing one starter kit).  

Please book as early as you can so we can ensure that you get your Block Therapy kit before the training day arrives. You receive a certificate from NW Autism and SEND, in addition to this starter kit, and an optional future consultation with NW Autism and SEND.

Group bookings, for example in a school, can be arranged for dates to fit in with your venue.  We also offer the option of splitting the day into two twilight sessions.

What are people saying about this training?

'I would like to thank Graham and Emma for an outstanding course. It gave a good base understanding of Autism before cleverly and creatively introducing Lego Therapy.

I specifically enjoyed attempting building a Lego set in our online group, it gave an interesting perspective of the potential difficulties faced by children with autism including communicating and awareness of surroundings and others specific needs.”
