Kids and Body Language

Kids can vary a lot in their ability to interpret body language - and this in turn can affect their social skills.

Children on the autism spectrum will clearly have special issues with understanding body language and some patient guidance may go a long way, particularly with Asperger Syndrome children.

Why not take the time to talk about and play with understanding body language with your children? Explain to them what different body signs mean. Show them how they can look confident by standing with their legs slightly apart and their head erect, with direct eye contact.

You can play all kinds of role-play games with your kids to teach them social skills - and have a lot of fun together at the same time!

Happy parenting,
