The skills we need to communicte with children and young people are ensuring that you are approchable and friendly, this would include body language you perceieve such as not crossing your arms and making your body towards the child eg if you angle your body towards the person you are talking too. If a smaller child try kneeling to talk to them so they can then see you are listening to them. Communicating effectively can include use of body language, facial expressions, facing the child, using open handed gestures, and smiling.
It is also important that we adapt the way we talk to different age groups we must be clear and concise, also changes to the context such as vocabulary used for them to fully understand what is being said and taking into consideration any additional learning needs they may have.
