For a lot of kids, if they had to name their favourite activities, lego would be near the top of the list.
A new partnership between Ability Links NSW and Bathurst Library will bring Lego for all as part of a new LEGO club.
The club is for people of all different abilities aged between five and 18 years of age and aims to promote inclusiveness and help build friendships.
The group will meet every Thursday at the library from 4pm to 5pm to play with LEGO and engage with other participants.
Ability Links NSW early linker Alana George said the program has been running in Orange and Parkes and received a lot of positive feedback from parents and carers.
“[Children] are learning to accept people of all abilities and how to include them in their everyday lives,” Ms George said.
The program promotes verbal and non-verbal communication, sharing and turn-taking, as well as their collaborative problem-solving skills and acceptance.
