Intensive Interaction

Intensive Interaction is an evidence based approach to developing rapport and relationship with people with servere communication disabilities arising from autism, learning disabilities or dementia.

The principle of the approach is to celebrate the person for who they are by joining in with the person’s in-the-moment interests and behaviour.  An effective approach to non-verbal communication, Intensive Interaction is an important person centred practice in the context of learning disability, autism and dementia care.

I work full-time as a freelance trainer and practitioner, offering consultancy, and acclaimed INSET and CPD training days to education and residential care settings with a focus on how to embed practice and develop systems of recording.
