Intensive interaction aims to develop the ‘fundamentals of communication’ which include:

 
  • Learning to give brief attention to another person.
  • To share attention with another person.
  • Learning to extend those attentions, learning to concentrate on another person.
  • Developing shared attention into 'activities'.
  • Taking turns in exchanges of behaviour.
  • To have fun, to play.
  • Using and understanding eye contacts.
  • Using and understanding of facial expressions.
  • Using and understanding of non-verbal communication such as gesture and body language.
  • Learning use and understanding of physical contacts.
  • Learning use and understanding of vocalisations, having your vocalisations become more varied and extensive, then gradually more precise and meaningful.
