Attention Autism is an intervention programme developed by Gina Davies, a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist at the Gina Davies Autism Centre. A large majority of teaching staff and the Speech and Language Therapist at Knowsley Central school have attended a 2-day Attention Autism course delivered by Gina Davies.  

The aim of Attention Autism is to develop a child’s natural and spontaneous communication through the use of visually enticing and highly motivating activities. The intervention helps to encourage joint attention & engagement, building vocabulary, and introducing new skills and experiences.

Attention Autism consists of 4 stages:

Stage 1: The Bucket – focus attention

Stage 2: The Attention Builder

Stage 3 – The Interactive Game – turn taking and shifting attention

Stage 4 – The Individual Activity – Focus shift and re-engage attention
