Communication can be divided into 4 different categories
Communication can be divided into 4 different categories: Verbal, non-verbal, formal and informal. Depending on the age of the children and young people will require different levels of attention when communicating with them. Younger children, as they have just started school need more assistance and support in order to make them feel safe and comfortable. As children grow up and become more mature they need more help when talking through issues or reflecting on their thoughts. You need to remember to adapt their vocabulary according to the age ranges, as well as consider repeating what you have said when speaking with younger children to make sure they understand what you have talked about.
