SenseAbilities and BrickHeadz have joined forces to create a social skills group for kids on the autism spectrum. I am ELATED.
BrickHeadz is a unbelievably awesome place.
Vanessa Siedlecki, the owner is one of the most out-of-the box creative, non-stop energetic people I know. And, she has an uncanny way with our kids. She has had practice though, as she too has a son on the Autism Spectrum. Vanessa knew there was a need for a social skills group within the autism community, so she created one within BrickHeadz. It incorporates legos AND social skill teachable moments!!!!
Did I mention they have LEGOS??
So what skills does BrickHeadz offer my kids in this 8 week class?
Appropriate interaction with friends and adults (YAY!!)
Recognize feelings…not just the sad face on a picture. But to know when they are sad and WHY.
Ability to work with others…I think we all need a course in this one!!
Here are a few words from my dear friend about BricHeadZ “Kids Night Out” program…
