As you know, at Elf Towers, we strive to identify the evidence you need to help inform the way people with learning disabilities are supported.
We have taken the unusual step today of pointing to a radio programme, from BBC Radio 4’s Word of Mouth series. The programme was broadcast this week and features the author Michael Rosen exploring the theme of communication.
You can hear a discussion with researchers with learning disabilities from the Norah Fry Centre at the University of Bristol who describe work they have done on producing a DVD about adult communication, as well as an interview with Phoebe Caldwell, who talks about her work on “intensive interaction”, in particular the need to listen and ‘tune in’ to non verbal communication.
The programme should be available to listen for up to a year. It would be good to hear your comments.
