LEGO® Workshop

Using LEGO® and working on projects can help a child to grow their skills in areas such as sharing, problem-solving, turn-taking, following rules and communicating.

Our new LEGO®-based groups are a fun and entertaining way of encouraging children to work alongside others to achieve goals. Children will be grouped into teams to work on interactive LEGO® projects together.

Meet A Friend Socially (MAFS)

Calling out to our school leavers and young people. What are you up to Friday night? Come and make some new friends in Leederville’s cafe strip. Meet with Therapists Helena and Sharon and a small group of similar aged VisAbility clients. It’s a safe space for a casual hang out, where you can talk about the next step after school, with others in the same situation.

Who would suit this group?

This group is for young adults between the ages of 17-19 who are due to leave, or who have recently left school. This can be a difficult phase and the group aims to ensure that bonds, friendships and support within the vision impaired community are maintained.
