New Director, Dr. Elinor Brett!
I am delighted to welcome Dr. Elinor Brett as a co-director for Bricks for Autism. Eli has been running Building Skills, running her own training courses in LEGO-based therapy. She's also an experienced Educational Psychologist, so it's great to have someone so experienced on board.
Eli and I first met some time ago, when she was studying for her Educational Psychology Doctorate in Cambridge. She was interested in studying LEGO-based therapy for her thesis, and contacted me about my research in the ARC. I trained her in how to implement the intervention and she went on to run a successful research project for children in mainstream schools, adding an important qualitative element to her research.
We are now working together on our Training for Trainers course, which we are launching in May 2019!
Looking forward to more exciting collaborations soon!
