    It’s not all about talking, Let’s Communicate!

    Practical resource book helping you to identify the best ways to communicate effectively to improve understanding, learning and behaviour.

    by Wendy Usher

    Communication involves far more than just using our voices. With the majority of children being visual and kinaesthetic learners, using our voices isn’t always the best way to be ‘heard’. This books explores ways to identify a child’s individual learning styles and how to adapt communication to suit those styles. Communicating in a way children relate to and comprehend is essential for understanding, which has positive consequences on learning and behaviour.

    There are lots of short case studies identifying situations where communication has worked well, not worked so well and reasons for both. It includes ideas for games and activities to support communication and will challenge you to think about how you are communicating, listening and hearing a child’s voice. As a result of your work the children will learn to better use their communication styles with you and each other.

    “I love this book, I use the ideas all the time in my class. It has helped my own communication with children and they are using the ideas with each other”.Teacher, Milton Keynes

    “Communication is essential, but we often talk too much! Sometimes we can walk away from a situation and wonder if the message was actually understood at all. This book looks at how we can improve our communication and help children improve theirs.” Wendy Usher
