How to improve social communication in children with autism

Many people think that communication = language or speech. But in fact, communication has much more than language! Our interaction with the world is full of non-verbal communication. We use our eye contact, facial expressions, body postures and body gestures (sometimes also called gestures) to make clear to the environment what we want, think and feel. Studies show that strengthening children’s non-verbal communication also encourages the development of their verbal and social abilities in the long term.
