I am not suggesting that close working and contact should be avoided, quite the contrary. In the chapters that follow I describe the numerous benefits of gesture, gaze and touch for children’s learning, communication and development. What I am saying here is to be aware of maintaining a comfortable distance for the child. The importance of this for effective communication is shown very clearly in the next section. I describe one particular situation where distancing children from adults can be of real benefit – the interviewing of child witnesses by unfamiliar adults.
For example, you are likely to frown and stare the child down. This will be intimidating for the child, greatly reducing his ability to express himself effectively. 4. Observe the child’s interactions with other people. There is generally a ‘settling in’ period when children meet someone they are unfamiliar with. With time they will increase their degree of approach, particularly if they feel relaxed. 5. Try making sure you give positive signals when greeting children. Show that you’re pleased to see them and ready to engage with them.
As you will see this is especially true with children. Unfortunately most of the time we are ‘blind’ to these cues in that we are not consciously aware of them. Even worse, at times we misinterpret children’s non-verbal gestures. Children communicate with us in many ways and only one of these is what they say. In this chapter we look at the development of hand gestures from infancy through to primary school. The important impact that gestures have on a baby’s developing sense of communication is described, as are the potential social and mental benefits that this brings.
