Intensive Interaction

Intensive Interaction – Course Lead: Yvonne Clarke

 

What is Intensive Interaction?

Intensive Interaction is an approach to help people experiencing learning difficulties develop the fundamental skills they need to be able to communicate. Such skills include turn taking, developing attention skills, use and understanding of gestures, eye contact and vocalisations and learning to enjoy sharing space and time with another person. The approach is based upon research into how we develop language and social interaction skills at the earliest stages of our development.

Intensive Interaction has shown to be beneficial for pupils and young people who have yet to develop the ability to communicate or those who have difficulties with social interaction.
