50 inclusive ideas to support effective communication and emotional understanding
Children often show us how they are feeling through their behaviour. Drawing on over 30 years’ experience, Wendy Usher shares practical suggestions to promote effective communication and encourage positive behaviour throughout a setting. Taking a child-centred approach, she looks at the possible reasons for behaviour, such as an underlying impairment or sensory overload. As well as activities to enjoy with the children, the book includes challenges for adults to consider how their own behaviour and communication may be affecting children’s responses.
The inclusive ideas cover listening skills, using visual structure, responding to kinaesthetic learners, recognising emotions and expressions, as well as helping support children with anxieties about separation and attachment. There are also strategies to help calm children down. A practical resource to support all areas of personal, social and emotional development (PSED). 65 pages, A4.
