Day 1 (Saturday 8 November)

Learn about Intensive Interaction and how this engaging, highly enjoyable, and low-cost educational programme can be implemented by any parent in any setting. Intensive Interaction can have a profound effect on your child's autism and on quality of life for the entire family. It successfully teaches the fundamentals of communication, relationships and learning, addressing the deficits that are at the very core of your child's autism diagnosis, whether or not higher-level communication skills such as speech, reading or writing have been attained to some degree. This learning is acquired in typical development during the first year and beyond and is necessary to enable social development and academic learning alike later in life. Delegates will leave with a strong introduction to the foundational basics of this parent-led approach, as well as an introductory document prepared by an Intensive Interaction Coordinator who is also the parent of a child with ASD.

Our keynote speaker Dr. Dave Hewett has been working nationwide for more than twenty years as an independent staff trainer and consultant to staff in all services who work with people who have autism and/or severe learning difficulties. Parent speakers will be sharing how they have used Intensive Interaction in their own families and provide feedback on the progress they've seen for their children with autism.

Lucinda Miller, MGNI, MRNI, MH. An Introduction to Nutritional Therapies for Autism.
Your chance to learn some basics about how to improve the health of people with ASD and in doing so, improve quality of life and ability to learn. 


Sue Finnes How I unlocked my son’s thoughts, reasoning, opinions and self-expression using the Rapid Prompting Method (RPM).
Sue’s 15 year old son is severely affected by autism and has many challenges, but since using RPM he has shown that he is highly intelligent and has now learnt how to express himself by independently pointing to letters on a letterboard.  He also learns age appropriate academics, has written poetry and has ‘told’ his mum that he now wants to help other children to learn this method.
This is your chance to learn how Sue has taken RPM and given her son a voice, and to talk to her about RPM could do for your child and family.
