Using Intensive Interaction with a Person with a Social or Communicative Impairment, Paperback / softback Book

Using Intensive Interaction with a Person with a Social or Communicative Impairment Paperback / softback


Intensive Interaction is a highly effective approach for communicating and developing social interaction and engagement with difficult-to-reach individuals.

This easy-to-use guide steers readers through the practical application of the approach, showing how positive results can best be achieved. The authors explain clearly how to prepare for, carry out and reflect on the use of Intensive Interaction with a client or family member.

A multitude of key questions are addressed, including finding the right setting, evaluating progress and disengaging effectively at the end of a session.

In the final section they consider some of the wider implications of the approach, such as developing confidence as a practitioner and incorporating Intensive Interaction into long-term care or educational planning. This practical and accessible book is a useful resource for speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, special school or further education teachers, social care professionals and anyone else caring for or working with people with social or communicative impairments.

It will also be useful to practitioners already using the approach.
