Exploring the role of FIRST® LEGO® robotics for enhancing social inclusion and participation of children and youth with disabilities: A pilot study

LEGO Robotics

Summary

Holland Bloorview has helped to adapt a FIRST® LEGO® robotics program for youth with disabilities. This program is run by FIRST® Robotics Canada with the aim to increase children’s exposure to science, technology, engineering and math while having fun with their peers. This is the first time that Holland Bloorview is running the program. Because of this, we want to learn more about how this program may benefit your child and any improvements for future groups. We will be exploring four areas of the FIRST® LEGO ® robotics program:

-The experiences of participating for participants and parents;

-How the FIRST® LEGO® robotics program was adapted to meet the needs of children with disabilities;

-How interested children and parents participating are in science, technology, engineering or math; and

-Whether and how the program promotes play and a fun environment for participants.
