Description - Using Intensive Interaction and Sensory Integration by Jane Horwood
People with severe autism experience the sensory information they receive from the world completely differently to those not on the spectrum. They feel cut off, overwhelmed and and retreat into a world of their own. Their behaviour can become very distressed. This handbook shows how we can engage with people who are non-verbal or semi-verbal and sometimes even those who have speech but lose the power to process this when they are in crisis. We can help them to make sense of the world. With illustrations, case examples and a wide range of tried-and-tested techniques, this is a practical nuts-and-bolts guide to using Intensive Interaction a?? using a persona??s own body language to make contact with them a?? and Sensory Integration a?? taking steps to reduce environmental factors that cause the person with autism distress. It provides indispensable tools for parents, carers and other professionals supporting people with severe autism and other learning disabilities.
