Finding you finding me : using intensive interaction to get in touch with people with severe learning disabilities combined with autistic spectrum disorder - 1st - London Jessica Kingsley 2006 - 174 p.: ill. ; 24 cm

Makes accessible complex, intricate inner and sensory worlds of people whose learning disabilities are combined with autistic spectrum disorder and difficult-to-manage behaviour. Explores the different sensory reality they experience, showing it to be infinitely more complex and varied than is widely understood. Introduces a practical approach known as Intensive Interaction, which uses the body language of such people - who have hitherto largely been regarded as unreachable - to get in touch with them, giving them a way of expressing themselves which shifts their attention from solitary self-stimulation to shared activity.
