Helping babies communicate – from day one by Sioban Boyce, Communication/Behaviour Specialist
Communication is not just about talking. In this presentation Sioban will explain how non-verbal communication develops in babies and the impact of not developing these essential skills. The talk includes how the following important skills impact on the development of how babies learn to participate in conversations:
• Facial interest & body language
• Importance of using signs
• Anticipation of events to promote calmness
• Prediction so that the child knows what to do, say, think and feel
• Nursery rhymes – copying body language, intonation and rhythm
• Structure of activities, including identifying the beginnings and ends through non-verbal clues.
About Sioban Boyce
Sioban qualified as a Speech & Language Therapist in 1978 and has more than thirty years experience of working with children’s communication problems, within the NHS and independently. She devised a new method of assessing and treating communication problems in children. The efficacy of this intervention has been proven over sixteen years through work with more than three hundred children. She is now imparting her knowledge and expertise to others through books, lectures and training on the causal connection between poor non-verbal communication development and social, educational and emotional problems in children. Working with Consultant Psychiatrist Dr Richard Fry, Sioban has undertaken some case studies for the Not Just Talking intervention programme, for publication, demonstrating the efficacy of the intervention method. They now aim to undertake a double blind study to provide further evidence of the effectiveness of Not Just Talking’s assessment and intervention methods.
