Today we hosted our 3rd Intensive Interaction 'flash mob' in the hall. There was vocalizing, laughing, eye contact, running, jumping, dancing, singing and more!
What might Intensive interaction look like?
Intensive interaction may include:
- Sharing personal space (e.g. sitting together)
- Imitation (e.g. echoing words/vocalizations)
- Physical contacts (e.g. holding or squeezing hands)
- Eye contact (e.g. playing peekaboo)
- Joint action (e.g. play with a ball)
- Exchanging facial expressions
- Turn taking (e.g. making noises back and forth)
- Joint focus (e.g. looking at objects together)
- Burst pause sequences (use a pause, leave space for a response (could be non-verbal), to build anticipation and expectancy e.g. ‘Ready, steady, go’ games)
