Author: Wendy Usher



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.

More ideas to support communication and listening skills can be found in Helping Young Children to Concentrate and Helping Young Children to Listen and our Talk Support Kit.

  1. :

    “I very much enjoyed reading this book – it reminded me of some activities and strategies I have used previously but had forgotten. It also reminded me of why it is so important to take into account children’s learning styles when considering how best to manage unwanted/inappropriate behaviours. I would highly recommend this book to newly qualified practitioners who are managing groups of children on their own for the first time. The book would also give useful advice to staff thinking about how best to support more challenging individuals. It is definitely a book to include in any early years library.”

    “A book aimed at practitioners, giving tips for encouraging positive behaviour and managing it. Some great tips and all the staff seem to be using it well. An excellent tool for the whole team as well as new, unqualified or inexperienced staff.”
