Intensive Interaction has changed the lives and daily experiences of many people with autism

This gently dynamic, naturalistic approach focuses on the development of social communication – focuses on reducing the effects of central impairments

It helps the person learn to connect and relate, do turn-taking, make eye contact, use and understand facial expressions, develop vocalisations and speech, to enjoy connecting and relating with other people
