If a child continues using baby talk past an appropriate age, lacks interest in nursery rhymes or shared book reading, has difficulty understanding simple directions or has difficulty learning or remembering names of letters, he may be at risk.
Glad you asked! We continue to strive to help everyone recognise their potential and support them to flourish.
We even have pages to help you deal with more difficult situations such as Dealing with Aggression and Communicating in Difficult Situations. Start your journey on our Presentation Skills main page.
Just like any other skill, learning to talk requires frequent practice. It therefore requires both speaking and listening, but also—and perhaps more crucially—developing a shared understanding of the information being transmitted and received.
Poor communication skills, on the other hand, can sour relationships from business to personal, and make your life significantly harder. It is also a guide to the pages on SkillsYouNeed that cover this essential area to enable you to navigate them effectively.
Non-verbal Communication Using our voice is only the tip of the iceberg. They can expand the conversations by asking children to elaborate on answers. Our page on Active Listening provides a lot more information about how to listen effectively and can also help you to avoid misunderstandings, while Types of Listening explains more about the theory of listening.
By having a deeper understanding of yourself and a more relaxed and positive outlook on life you are more likely to be charismatic, a trait that can further aid the communication process.
