What is Non-verbal Communication? 

Non-verbal Communication and Sensory Aides

Communication always requires that at least two people are involved in the process.    

We distinguish between the sender of a message and the recipient. There are different channels through which communication occurs: 

  • Acoustic (what you can hear)    

  • Visual (what you can see)    

  • Tactile (what you can touch)    

  • Emotional (what you can feel)    

*These channels show how closely non-verbal communication is linked to relationships and emotions, making it extremely relevant to working with young children.
