“Communication is more than just words.”

Communication can be both verbal and nonverbal. You can learn a lot about what a child or adult needs based on their behavior. Children with language delays often communicate first with signs or gestures before they are able to communicate with words. Watching and listening to what your child is trying to communicate is important for their success both socially and emotionally. The same can be said for adults having trouble communicating that may have aphasia or anomia. We encourage caretakers to watch nonverbal behaviors that may tell them more about what their loved one may need.
