Us in a Bus uses Intensive Interaction to find ‘ways in’ with people who are otherwise very isolated. Through careful observation we learn the significance of people’s behaviours, find ways to connect and establish some common ground. Then we can experiment together, trying out various activities and interactions, exploring movement, sound, touch and playfulness, to encourage people to develop their sociability and communication abilities – and we hope, to enjoy themselves in the process.

The Us in a Bus team have written five Top Tips for those practising Intensive Interaction and Anne Laney, Practice Manager, has created these videos of them for easy viewing.

Top Tip No. 1 – Hold the space top tip 1

Top Tip No. 3 – Stop when you’re told to top tip 3

Top Tip No. 5 – Be more than a mirror  top tip 5 

Top Tip No. 2 – Embrace repetition top tip 2

Top Tip No. 4 – Am I on purpose top tip 4
