This straightforward, no-nonsense handbook contains: – 2 new chapters: The Intensive Interaction Outcomes Reporter; and Autism and Intensive & Intensive Interaction and more able people; – photo stories demonstrating the approach in practice; – links to external videos presenting the photo stories in greater depth.
