Intensive Interaction

Intensive interaction is an approach for sharing enjoyable and meaningful interactions with children and adults who have complex communication needs.  It involves using the learner’s own movements, body language and vocalisation to take turns and share attention with each other.  Intensive interaction can be used to develop our learner’s communication skills.

In this video you can hear the song signifier, as well as seeing both an object signifier (the tinsel) and a symbol which can also be used to communicate what’s about to happen.

Coming soon… some videos of Intensive Interaction in action!

If you would like to know more about Intensive Interaction, please contact your Speech & Language Therapist.
