Intensive Interaction is a practical approach to interacting with people who have learning difficulties and/or autism and still at an early stage of communication development.
Intensive Interaction is based on early parent-child interaction that involves mirroring movements, noises, speech, facial expressions, body language, gestures and breathing. The approach is child-led, enabling you to step into their world and build social interaction by helping them to better relate and enjoy the company of others. This helps build trusting and positive relationships.
Intensive interaction enhances the communication abilities of the child by developing pre-speech fundamental communication skills to nurture social interaction and connection.
