About the Workshop: You will be equipped with the knowledge, attitude and skills to deliver the Build-to-PlayTM Program to schools or your settings for children and young people aged 4-18 years. Inspired by the former Lego®-Based Therapy where Ms Stella Choy attended trainings in 2017 and 2019 from Dr. Gina Gomez de la Cuesta in Cambridge, Stella developed a new Build-to-PlayTM
Program based on her PhD research. Stella has published several articles in peer-reviewed journals and presented in several international conferences. This workshop introduces the evidence based practice of Build-to-PlayTM Program not only for social communication skills, but also for wellbeing and executive functioning. This CPD workshop is supported by Trinity Research in Social Sciences (TRiSS) in Trinity College Dublin as Stella was awarded TRiSS Postgraduate Research Fellowship in 2021-22.
With an inclusive framework Universal Design for Learning, Ms. Stella Choy aims to make a newly researched school-based approach Build-to-PlayTM program available to children and young people who struggle with wellbeing issues and social communication difficulties by providing high quality training and resources to Professionals. Having identified the research gap, Stella developed a novel approach of small groups for 4-18 year-old individuals.
