Intensive Interaction Practitioner Training Course | Wetherby Health Centre | Thursday, 14. May 2020

Aims:


To develop an understanding of Intensive Interaction as an approach for teaching, communicating and interacting more effectively with individuals with severe/complex communication difficulties, learning disabilites, and/or autism (children working at pre-verbal or very early levels of their development)


To explore what makes communication successful and develop a fuller understanding of the need to communicate at an appropriate level for the child. 


Ideal For:
This is a full day course for teachers and support staff in Early Years/Foundation Stage, mainstream, partnership, resourced, and specialist inclusive learning centres who support children with sever/complex communication and learning difficulties and/or autism.
Overview:
Intensive Interaction is an approach to teach the fundamentals of communication that usually come before speech. It is used with both children and adults who have severe learning difficulties and/or autism and who are still at an early stage of their communication development or lack crucial social interaction skills.
Based around a parent- infant interaction model it uses natural interaction to create enjoyable and understandable interaction experiences and thus develop the individual’s communication and interaction skills.
