This approach involves intervening entirely or largely with parents of children with autism, rather than directly with the children themselves.
The parents are trained to detect and respond appropriately to the individual child’s attempts to communicate – however subtle, strange or even challenging these attempts may appear.
This involves observing their own interactions with their child and reflecting on what works and what doesn’t work. They can then devise communication strategies based on what works for that specific child.
We are currently reviewing the research evidence on the use of responsive teaching for people with autism.
If you are aware of further research, or you would like to share your personal experiences of responsive teaching, please email email@example.com Thank you.
