International Intensive Interaction week 8-14th October 2018: Day 411 Oct 2018International Intensive Interaction week 8-14th October 2018: Day 4Day 4: Intensive Interaction 'Flash mob' and What might Intensive interaction look like?


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)
Please see our attachment on ‘Intensive interaction activity examples’ for types of activities you may see in intensive interaction.
