Intensive interaction (II) recognises the pre‐verbal nature of adults with profound learning disabilities and mimics the early attachment process to develop the very beginnings of communication and sociability. This paper Reports on the use of II with a remote and withdrawn adult with severe learning disabilities and visual impairments, who engaged in serious self‐injurious behaviour. The results indicate that the intervention was successful in facilitating the development of the first stages of social and communication skills.
