Measuring the impact of Intensive Interaction on joint attention and intentional communication using the FOCAL wheels - Good Autism Practice 18 (1) May 2017: 34-45 1466-2973 .

Amandine Mourière, an Intensive Interaction practitioner, shares her work in assessing how Intensive Interaction affects joint attention and intentional communication. She outlines her use of an action research design to allow her to reflect on her own practice, a useful method for practitioners working independently. She also describes the design and use of an assessment tool referred to as FOCAL wheels (Fundamentals of Communication Assessment and Learning) to overcome some of the issues faced with the currently available tools. This paper is based on a single case study, so more research is needed to validate the use of FOCAL wheels.
