PROGRAMMING SPECIFIC TO COMPLEX
AND HIGH NEEDS
Intensive interaction is a play-based approach to help develop early, pre-speech communication and interaction skills like eye contact, facial expressions, the ability to copy sounds and shared attention. It also aims to reduce repetitive and self-injurious behaviour.
The claim is that intensive interaction helps individuals learn how to engage with other people for progressively longer periods in gradually more complex and diverse activities.
Sensory exploration is an individual’s way of examining, discovering, categorising and making sense of the world. It is highly beneficial to provide individuals with opportunities for sensory play with activities tailored to focus on sensory stimuli.
Focusing on the use of total communication with the implementation of Auslan, consistent routines, picture aids, verbal and physical prompting and staff awareness of delayed processing to enable the Trainees to fully communicate with staff.
The hotel model is where support staff do things for the people they look after and then become observers by not doing things for themselves. Conversely, active support is a way of ensuring people are able to engage and take part in their own support by having a person-centred plan for them.
