When communicating with children and young people it is important to be clear, concise, age appropriate and supporting needs and abilities.
To communicate effectively with children we need to be confident and have a range of skills than can include: active listening, empathising with a childs point of view, build a trusting relationship, understanding non-verbal communication and explaining and sometimes even recap the information we give to them.
We as teachers need to work at the childs pace, every child is different so we may need to adapt how we speak with individual children.
Use of body language and facial expression, we need to make sure that we show interest by the way we act round the child or young person. We need to be approachable, I would get down the childs level so they don’t feel intimidated by me towering over them. And always smile and react in a positive way to what they are telling you.
