... the extraordinary little specialty shoppe for school
and pediatric therapists, teachers, and parents too!
This book is about the child who talks too loudly, stands too closely to others, laughs at the wrong times, touches others inappropriately, and often misinterprets facial expressions and body language cues... Written especially for parents and teachers, this important guide provides valuable insight on how nonverbal behavior and communication affects a child's social acceptance. Features chapters on: Rhythm/The Use of Time, Use of Space and Touch, Gestures and Postures, Facial Expressions, ParaLanguage (communication that goes beyond spoken words), and Appearance. Includes: Tips for Parents and Teachers, Informal/Formal Assessment, Remediation Activities and Ideas, and a Resource Section. Learn how to help these "out of sync kids" solve their nonverbal communication struggles!
