About this event

In this follow-up webinar to ‘Introduction to Adaptive Interaction’, Dr Maggie Ellis discusses the progression of the approach over the years. Maggie will show a collection of her research videos and provide an up-to-date summary of findings, developments and new directions.

People with advanced dementia who have lost the ability to speak are typically thought to have no communicative abilities or desire to interact and, as such, are excluded from the social world. People with advanced dementia retain both the urge to interact and individual repertoires of non-verbal communicative capacities including sounds, movements, facial expressions. These actions can be used by caregivers to re-engage individuals with advanced dementia in social interaction - an approach known as 'Adaptive Interaction'.
