Communication and Interaction
Interaction skills are supported through the use of intensive interactions where an adult copies the sounds a child makes and the actions they do which teaches the child that interacting is fun and purposeful.
Communication skills are taught by supporting children with visuals and using appropriate communication methods to allow children to communicate their wants and needs e.g. objects, photographs and symbols. Children are referred to speech therapists if they need additional support in this area and advice is used to inform targets specific to the child.
Please see below the medium term plan for Intensive Interactions.
