Intensive Interaction

Developing Fundamentals of Communication

Intensive Interaction has had an impact on the whole family. Everybody is doing it with Henry and everybody feels they have a part in the conversation with him. They all feel part of his life.

It’s amazing the difference Intensive Interaction has had on my son Luke. He has gained social skills that will enhance the rest of his life. The health professionals who know him cannot believe that he’s progressed so far.

Intensive Interaction has helped me build a connection with my older brother that I previously didn't realise was possible, and it has helped me to understand him better. It has transformed our lives!

Welcome to the Intensive Interaction Website, home of the Intensive Interaction Institute. Intensive Interaction is an approach designed to help people at early levels of development, people who have autism, people who have severe, profound or complex learning difficulties. Intensive Interaction works on early interaction abilities - how to enjoy being with other people - to relate, interact, know, understand and practice communication routines.

Intensive Interaction teaches and develops the ‘Fundamentals of Communication’, attainments such as: use and understanding of eye contacts, facial expressions, vocalisations leading to speech, taking turns in exchanges of conversation and the structure of conversation.
