Children and Communication: Verbal and Nonverbal Language Development.
Wood, Barbara S.
This book takes a broad look at children learning to communicate with words, sentences, body language, and touch. It shows how children learn to communicate effectively in everyday situations by selecting the most appropriate communication strategies--the verbal and nonverbal language which they feel are best suited to the situation. Part 1 examines the forces that affect the development of children as communicators. Part 2 probes children's progress with words, sentences, and meanings. Part 3 explores the nonverbal language children use. Part 4 offers a model of communication instruction that includes activities, materials, and ideas for the classroom. (RB)
