A practical guide to intensive interaction

Melanie Nind and Dave Hewett

This handbook contains simple yet highly effective techniques for communicating with and relating to adults and children with severe learning disabilities.

This practical handbook will enable staff, parents and carers to help people with severe learning difficulties to communicate more easily with other people, using Intensive Interaction tools and techniques devised by the authors.

A Practical Guide to Intensive Interaction will be invaluable to anyone new to Intensive Interaction techniques, and those with some experience, including:

  • direct care staff

  • classrom assistants and class teachers
  • families and other carers of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities
  • managers of services, including team leaders


Included in the guide are numerous case studies and examples, checklists, and suggestions for troubleshooting and further reading.

"This book pinpoints many simple ways in which better communication can become a reality."
Professor Roy McConkey, University of Ulster
