Using intensive interaction opened a world of communication, play and understanding one another.
Intensive Interaction has given Zak the confidence to thrive in his own way and at his own time and has given him the confidence to be who he is today.

Dr Dave Hewett
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.
