The Social Communication Intervention Programme (SCIP) has been developed to support school-aged children (6-11 years) with social communication, pragmatic, and language needs. The Social Communication Intervention Programme Manual provides a rationale and method for providing specialist level language therapy for these children who have significant social communication differences. Evidence for the effectiveness of SCIP is included in The Manual.

This book introduces the SCIP model and explores the three main components: social understanding/social inference, pragmatics, and language processing. Guidance is included on how to link assessment with therapy, how to plan and individualise interventions, and how to proceed with the programme. It contains a wealth of real-life case examples to illustrate key points, with step-by-step instructions for carrying out the interventions.

Used alongside The Social Communication Intervention Programme Resource, this book offers a truly practical, tried-and-tested model to provide targeted, individualised intervention for children with social communication challenges. It is an essential tool for speech and language therapists, specialist teachers, and psychologists who are working with children with social communication, pragmatic, and language needs.

For the most effective use, The SCIP Manual should be purchased alongside The SCIP Resource.
