Abstract:
Social inclusion (Department of Health [DoH], 2001a) is desirable for all regardless of disadvantage or disability. This study focuses on an intervention called 'Intensive Interaction' (Nind & Hewett, 1988, 1994). It is a transactional approach that enhances the responsiveness of carers thereby improving the fundamental communication and social abilities of people with complex learning disabilities and hence influencing their social inclusion.
