Janet and Phoebe Caldwell took to the stage on Saturday to talk to a group of delegates brought together by The Caldwell Autism Foundation and the Swiss Cottage School Development and Research Centre.  Lots of positive feedback and discussion about their understanding of the sensory aspects of autism and of how sensory experiences can cause pain, distress and isolation for the person with autism.

They used case studies and film footage to talk about Intensive Interaction, which when used in combination with sensory-based approaches can allow the parent, practitioner or care-giver to initiate and develop emotional engagement with the person with autism. This is an uncomplicated, accessible approach to communication that, with appropriate guidance, anyone can begin to use.

Thank you to Becky Lyddon of Sensory Spectacle for the photo of Janet in action!
