General Information


reading people body language

Teaching Pixreading people body language may be as complex as spoken communication.  For low-verbal autistic individuals they may be more in tune with reading body language and may be more expressive with their body movements.  Body language as a means of communication may be a helpful option in addition to the use of speech whether one is low-verbal or not.

Thus, the use of body language in games such as acting out expressions and then saying out loud the words may be a fun game to play while increasing verbal awareness.

"Training parents to better communicate with their autistic preschoolers can spur children's language development, according to a study of one such training program...Specifically, she and her colleagues found that a program known as More Than Words helped parents build their 2-, 3- and 4-year-old children's vocabularies. The program, which was developed by Canadian doctors, teaches parents how to interact with their autistic children in a playful way-using "fun" words, games, musical speech and other tactics to aid their language development."
