Verbal and nonverbal communication activities
By: Carmen Willings
Nonverbal behaviors provide us with a lot of information about conversations and interactions. Students who are blind will not be able to perceive nonverbal communication and students with low vision may not be able to perceive subtle nonverbal communication. Not being able to see the effects of their actions and how others respond can impact the students understanding of the effects of their behavior as they may not have enough vision to see people’s body language. Students may need extra support in understanding what nonverbal behaviors communicate, both of others and of themselves. Some students will need honest, but kind, feedback to understand how others respond to their behaviors.
