  • Responsive Communication is an approach that can be used with individuals regardless of their age, gender or ethnic origin.
  • Responsive Communication is a combined approach which both attends to sensory difficulties and uses body language to promote emotional engagement.

 

This series of short films shows an extended conversation  between Phoebe Caldwell (DSc, Expert Responsive Communication Practitioner who has worked with autistic people for 45 years) and Janet Gurney (BA, PGCT, Director of Training for Us in a Bus, a service based in Surrey that supports adults and children with profound and multiple learning difficulties and autism).
