The Art Center of Battle Creek (MI) recently sponsored “Art of the Lego,” a toy in existence since 1949. Executive Director Linda Holderbaum is trying to appeal to Lego afficiandos as well as spark the imagination of children with autism. She explains, “We're trying to really promote the arts as part of health, the whole concept of the art of play, which Lego is really big on.” Julie Wilson, a autism specialist at the Envision Center, which is part of Southwest Regional Rehabilitation Center (SRRC), said that toys like Lego can spark communication between kids, their parents, and their therapists.
