At Let’s Go Play, all of our programs are structured to consist of a group of peers who work toward a common goal, and a therapist who leads and coaches the group. We are currently offering our Heroes© Program, LEGO® Building, and PokÈmon Our Way©. Contact us to schedule a free trial class.
Your child will work within a clearly defined set of rules but will be otherwise be free to make his or her own decisions. The catch? Just like in real life, no-one succeeds on their own. Your child will practice making decisions that are not purely self-interested, but rather are in the best interests of the group. And our therapists are there every step of the way to guide the players and help them make good choices.
Over time, we have seen that classes become tight knit groups, independently supporting and advocating for each other as they work toward a common cause.
We know that fun can change behavior for the better—especially with kids. That’s why we keep our programs entertaining. Because our players are motivated and engaged with the game, they are more open to learning and are better able to complete difficult tasks like taking turns or sharing. Over time, the goal is to transfer these skills to real life scenarios.
We help kids discover their inner hero.
Without age-appropriate socials skills, kids can feel lost and anxious in group situations, leading to low self esteem, missed friendships and problem behaviors. Let’s Go Play empowers kids of all ages by giving them the opportunity to truly succeed in a group setting.
Our peer-based approach gives kids the chance to make friendships and experience a sense of belonging that they might be lacking in their normal day to day life. And our unique environment fosters collaboration in a group setting that is both interactive and fun.
Modeled after tabletop role playing games, Heroes empowers kids to become super characters with special skills, working together in a group to defeat monsters.
This LEGO based therapy approach utilises your child’s interests and strengths in order to elicit a willingness to collaborate and interact.
Our version involves organization and teamwork for younger children. We help them understand rules, strategies and how to handle winning and losing.
“My son struggles with friendships at school, but when he comes to Heroes© he’s one of the gang! It’s so great to hear the kids working together and having fun. And Mr. Dan is awesome—he is right there to provide the necessary modelling that my son needs to succeed, but in a way that my son feels guided, not corrected.”
“Let’s Go Play has been a huge benefit for our son. The small group setting really allows him to interact socially without really knowing it. The one to one therapy setting allows therapists to intervene immediately when an issue or teaching moment arises.”
“I think the real life situations that building with LEGO® toys brings is so valuable. Sharing, negotiating, and disputing are all things that occur outside of Let's Go Play. I think my son has learned some tools for the real world.”
