Non-Verbal Cues (Videos)



Welcome to the Non-Verbal Cues Video Pack with Suggested Activities

Understanding non-verbal cues is important because they convey a wealth of information, including:

  • Enhanced Communication:   Non-verbal cues such as facial expressions, body language, and gestures can convey emotions, attitudes, and intentions.
  • Improved Relationships: Accurate interpretation of non-verbal cues can lead to better interpersonal relationships.
  • Conflict Resolution: Misunderstandings often arise from misinterpretation of non-verbal cues. By recognising signs of tension or frustration, you can address issues before they escalate into conflicts.
  • Effective Listening:  Non-verbal cues help children become a more attentive listener.
  • Self-Awareness: Understanding non-verbal cues goes both ways; it can help children become more aware of their own body language and emotional expressions. This self-awareness can be valuable for personal growth and effective communication.

This resource links to the assessment tool, social skill difficulties checklist.  It is recommended that this checklist is completed first to track the impact of future interventions.
