Improving communication skills and building better relationships with people who have communication impairments.

Intensive Interaction is an approach used with people with communication impairments. It improves communication skills and builds better relationships.

To achieve this, people supporting the individual adapt to the person’s communication methods and style. The focus of change is not on the person with communication difficulties but on the professional, friend or family member. The method is used across the world with children and adults with learning disabilities, autism and dementia. The aim is make it easier for them to communicate with us by changing how we communicate with them.

Jules McKim, our Intensive Interaction specialist care coordinator ​said: “Intensive Interaction allows us to listen to people who are non-verbal. It gives a voice to the voiceless. It also supports the inclusion of people who are at great risk of social isolation and it does this on the person’s terms.

The Intensive Interaction Café will have skilled practitioners with the latest books, articles and DVDs. This will be an opportunity to observe and practice Intensive Interaction. Please do come along – on your own, or with someone you support.
