Play Included offer training for health & education professionals in the Brick-by-Brick® programme, a learning through play concept using collaborative LEGO play to support children’s social and emotional development. 

The Brick-by-Brick® programme can help autistic young people develop a sense of belonging and friendship. As children build LEGO® models in a group, they use skills such as collaboration and communication, all whilst having fun and making friends.

Play Included have free LEGO building activities to develop play and connection for families at home. There is also the Building Friendships resources for schools, which is a free class activities pack to build social relationships and teamwork through play.
