International Intensive Interaction week 10-16th October 201610 Oct 2016International Intensive Interaction week 10-16th October 2016

This week at the East SILC we are celebrating the first ever International ‘Intensive Interaction Week’. This means we will all be doing something 'a little bit extra' to help promote Intensive Interaction for those students who need it. 

Intensive interaction is an approach to teaching the pre-speech fundamentals of communication to children and adults who have severe learning difficulties and/or autism and who are still at an early stage of communication development.

Some of the activities we have planned include:
  • Our regular ‘Intensive interaction drop-ins’
  • Sharing videos between staff to develop good practice
  • Daily news item about II
  • Sharing of top tips for II
  • Information available at Parents Evening (13th October)
  • Student-led ‘Simon Says’ games
  • Intensive Interaction Flash mob

In the future we will be hosting a parent coffee morning on intensive interaction (date to be confirmed). We also look forward to welcoming back Graham Firth, Intensive Interaction Project Leader (Leeds & York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust) for further staff training later in the year.
