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. Phoebe 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 Phoebe Caldwell and You Don’t Know What It’s Like also features an updated ‘GP’s viewpoint’ provided by Dr Matt Hoghton.
