Peic D Workshop - Virtual Delivery 2 sessions

Boost funding available for BCP Schools. Attention at both afternoons is essential

The PEIC-D approach revisits early interaction skills such as imitation, turn-taking and interaction. These skills are often poorly developed in children with severe and/or complex learning difficulties, including autistic spectrum disorders.By working through a series of steps, using game formats, the child learns to watch others' play, join in, and then take part in turn taking sequences. Later stages include learning to initiate games, and negotiating the rules.
