View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This handbook collects together three of Phoebe Caldwell's groundbreaking books on Intensive Interaction and other innovative techniques for communicating with people with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and/or profound learning disabilities. Key features: Written by a leading expert in the subject; compendium of three titles; supported by numerous case histories and interpretation of real-life examples; accessible and engaging; practical advice for people working in the field. About the resource The three texts brought together in this handbook offer a new perspective for those supporting people with ASD and/or profound and multiple learning disabilities. Caldwell emphasises the importance of shifting the focus away from the label of 'challenging behaviour' and instead offers practical advice for ways that we can help to alleviate the distress that may be at the route of such behaviours, by communicating with people on their own terms and in their own 'language'. She uses multiple case studies from her years of experience in the field to illustrate Intensive Interaction and the innovative techniques that she has developed for entering the person's world, as they experience it, and approaching two-way communication from this perspective. The compendium includes a new introduction written by Caldwell and You Don't Know What It's Like also features an updated 'GP's viewpoint' provided by Dr Matt Hoghton. Contents include: This handbook brings together Person to Person You Don't Know What It's Like Crossing the Minefield. Vital information for: Health and social care workers, personal assistants, service staff and managers, family members, and individuals supporting people on the autistic spectrum and/or those with profound learning disabilities

About the Author:

Phoebe Caldwell author of Delicious Conversations, Listening with All Our Senses, Learning the Language and Creative Conversations Phoebe Caldwell is an Intensive Interaction practitioner working mainly with children and adults on the autistic spectrum, many of whom have behavioural distress. Phoebe's methods combine using a person's body language to communicate, with paying attention to those aspects of an individual's environment that are triggering sensory distress. For four years Phoebe was a Rowntree Research Fellow looking at best practice. She teaches management, therapists, parents, teachers, advocates and carers, nationally and internationally. She is also employed by NHS, social services and community and education services to work with individuals they are finding it difficult to provide a service for. She has published seven books and four training films and a number of academic papers. In 2010, she was awarded the Times/Sternberg Active Life Award for work on autism and contribution to the community, and in July 2011 Bristol University awarded her an Honorary Doctorate of Science for communication with people with autism.
