Intensive interaction is an approach to teaching the pre-speech fundamentals of communication to children and adults who have severe learning difficulties and/or autism and who are still at an early stage of communication development.
This unit explores theoretical and practical aspects of Intensive Interaction. Topics include observation techniques, responding interactively, recognising progress, self evaluation and video analysis, as well as perspectives of attitudes towards people with intellectual disabilities. The unit also examines the critical perspectives and developments in psychology and learning that underpin the approach, and reflects on successful approaches to embedding the use of Intensive Interaction in a school, or service setting.
