"Responsive Communication is a groundbreaking new book which has been put together by a team of authors led by Phoebe Caldwell, who during her long-time practice in this field has found some unique paths to achieving deep and meaningful engagement with autistic people and people with profound and multiple learning disabilities. The book explains how to communicate with children and adults who are struggling to understand and articulate speech using Responsive Communication. Responsive Communication combines intensive interaction (using people’s body language to communicate) with attention to sensory issues, to encourage effective emotional engagement and reduce behavioral distress. The authors offer a range of fascinating and informative perspectives on the approach and application of responsive communication, from backgrounds including expert by experience, communication, service management, occupational therapy, neuroscience and psychiatry. What this range of contributors has in common is a sense that before we can address communication, we need to attend to the sensory features of autism and reduce the information processing distress that may be hindering our ability to get in touch with our autistic partners." - BOOK JACKET
