Intensive Interaction as an approach for helping children with autism spectrum disorder
Drlíčková, Hana ; Sotáková, Hana (advisor) ; Valentová, Lidmila (referee)
This thesis examines the possible use of Intensive Interaction in a child with autism. The theoretical part contains a description of autism spectrum disorders, unravels the difficulties children with autism face in the areas of sociability and communication, offers an overview of the theoretical background of Intensive Interaction and describes the way in which Intensive Interaction works. The practical part includes a case study of work with the Intensive Interaction method on developing social and communication skills in a child with autism. It was found that during the three months of the intervention, progress was made in the areas of sociability and communication and that some new patterns of behaviour emerged, such as eye contact, imitating classmates, social smile, shared attention or pointing to an object or activity. There has also been observed a significant reduction of stereotyped behaviour.
