Filisia Selected for 'Play For All Accelerator'

Filisia, an investee company within the Deepbridge Life Sciences EIS portfolio, has been selected to participate in the 'Play For All Accelerator' by The LEGO Foundation.

The Play For All programme brings together 25 start-ups, non-governmental organisations and social enterprises that support neuro divergent children to grow and thrive through play.

Filisia commented:

"It is a privilege to be among such exceptional companies coming together worldwide to help young people build belonging and get a fair chance to learn through play."

Evidence shows that neurodivergent children benefit from the sheer variety of ways to learn that come from play. For any child who prefers learning through moving rather than sitting at a desk, play is the ideal way to get up, experiment and get to grips with the world. For any child who likes order and calm (in a world that for them is already noisy enough) play comes with rules, routines and reassuring systems that everyone can follow.

Seymour Papert, LEGO Professor of Learning Research commented:

"Rather than pushing children to think like adults, we might do better to remember that they are great learners and to try harder to be more like them."
