Event Description This one-day course provides background to the PEIC-D approach, detailed description of each stage, how to implement in settings and includes workshop activities to practice the techniques. This course is essential for SENCOs.

PEIC-D Promoting Early Interactive Conversations Dorset is based on SPEIC - Scheme to Promote Interactive Conversations (Smith and Fluck)

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, negotiating the rules and working in groups

Level: 3 All practitioners are welcome.
