This relates to the way your child interacts with other people, using facial expression, tone of voice, body posture, spoken language and gesture to provide information or make requests.
Communication can be non-verbal which relates to appropriate use of eye-contact, using gestures to aid our communication attempts and using body posture and facial expression. Non-verbal communication starts from the moment your child is born.
Children can have difficulties in understanding and using both verbal and non-verbal forms of communication which can have implications of their social development. Communication is key to social interaction and is the foundation for speech and language development.
