Using Legos to Build Social Skills

PLANO, Texas – Carla Graham's Lego Lovers are creating more than castles and spaceships. They're building social skills.
Graham started Plano Lego Lovers as a way to bring together kids who have a passion for Legos but difficulty with social situations. The idea came to Graham as she searched for a play group for her 10-year-old son, Ian, who has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. In a year and a half, the group has grown to more than 100 members, many of whom are autistic.
