International Intensive Interaction week 8th-14th October 201808 Oct 2018International Intensive Interaction week 8th-14th October 2018This week at the East SILC we are celebrating the third 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 (17th October)
  • Student-led ‘Simon Says’ games
  • Intensive Interaction Flash mob

In the future we will be hosting a parent coffee morning on intensive interaction, 28th November, 10.30-12, and we are excited to host the Leeds Regional Intensive Interaction Support Group tomorrow, 9.10.18, 4-5.30pm.
