This guide is an output of a collaborative research project between Flinders University, Autism SA, and Griffith University. The project: “Can LEGO® Robotics therapy improve the mental health and social skills of adolescents on the autism spectrum?: A Phase 1 trial,” was funded by the Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation (https://crf.org.au/). Twenty-four autistic teens between the ages of 13-16 years from four mainstream schools participated in the project. Each LEGO® Robotics group of three teens was supported by two facilitators from Autism SA, and run at schools during school hours. This guide consists of information on the LEGO® Robotics therapy program, how to form and facilitate the groups, supporting resources, learnings from the program, and a summary of the research findings.
