Communication (verbal & non verbal) is one of the major developmental tasks in early childhood It is how we interact and connect with the outside world and how we develop a sense of belonging with those we are close to. When your child struggles with expressing their thoughts and feelings or has a hard time feeling successful communicating with others it can begin to cause intolerable frustration as well as leave them feeling incompetent and unsafe out in the world. I offer many approaches that will help your child to express and understand thoughts, feelings and information. They will learn, play out and practice communication skills in a way that has them feeling competent in expressing themselves and in their ability to build friendships and in turn feel more successful at school.
