The aim of Intensive Interaction is to develop early interaction and communication skills. This might include eye contact, turn-taking and understanding simple words.
The key principle of Intensive Interaction is that the child leads the activity. This means that there is no particular goal to the activity. For example the goal is not for your child to take turns rolling a ball or to play peekaboo with you, and you are not telling or showing the child what to do.
