Are verbal cues or nonverbal cues more dependable? In my daily observation, I can see that nonverbal cues occupy their importance in communication in which people often depend on the nonverbal cues to guess or get the intended or exact meaning or idea of the sender. Also when verbal cues and non-verbal cues contradict with each other or verbal cues are absent, people tend to believe the non-verbal cues because they are natural, unconscious language that broadcast our true feelings and intentions in any given moment. Therefore, I am in a large extent agreeing
This is often an important way of communicating where there is no language used for the child’s needs to be understood. Gestures, rhymes, songs, finger plays, drawings and representation, is a fun way of communicating with the children. Where some children may not have any language skills they could use the songs, rhymes and actions to communicate their needs by using facial expressions e.g happy, sad, tired. Also children could draw a picture of how they are feeling or what they want. Augmentative communication is a way to help with language disorders.
Denise Meloche 4222-324 Support Individuals with Specific communication needs 1. Understand specific communication needs and factors affecting them. 1.1 It is important to meet the individual’s communication needs so; • they can be informed and therefore make informed choices • express their feelings and views • be alerted to danger • interact socially • be involved with everyday activities • understand what is going on around them • learn 1.2 My role and practice can impact on communication with an individual with specific communication needs by giving them the opportunities for all of the above.

People are always making decisions, even when they don’t need to. Dillard wants people to understand that “we could live any way we want,” but it’s important to do what we’re supposed to do, not what we’re more comfortable doing. It would be easier for people to stop making hard choices and start living as they are supposed to. If we lived like weasels do, everything would be easier because “a weasel lives as he’s meant to, yielding at every moment to the perfect freedom of single necessity.” If we give ourselves over to mindlessness and necessity we will notice the changes between our old and new life. Humans think too much about every decision they make, no matter if it’s big or small.
A social interaction is a face to face process between two or more people, the interaction involves, actions, reactions, communication and a mutual concept of each other’s body language and mannerisms. The goal of interactionism is merely communication with others. One person would observe the others behaviour and adapt their own communication skills to return the communication. For example, if you wanted to communicate with a deaf person, you would identify immediately that either sign language or lip reading would be the most appropriate way of communicating. All individuals have different attitudes, values, cultural and religious beliefs, however in such a diverse society it is important to understand a minimal amount of knowledge about others beliefs in order to all come together in society.
Indulgence often brings an insulation that keeps children from undertaking the expected challenges of childhood. Learning from varied experiences of success, failure, and frustration are the basis for emotional growth. Children who don’t have the opportunity to learn firsthand usually give up easily when they meet with difficulty. In conclusion, this mythical disease is curable, but it comes with lots of steps in order for it to be fully cured. First, parents shouldn’t substitute their time with their children with gifts.
There are three properties that seem to make language different from other cognitive functions. According to Willingham, (2007), humans seem to be primed to learn language without special instruction, but just by being exposed to it at a critical period in childhood. Language seems to be innate, meaning human seem to be predisposed to the learning of language. Language is special because only humans have the capability to learn the complex nuances of language. Language influences other cognitive processes.
We try to be polite, reliable and respond quickly to show interest in others and their opinions and values by our choice of words and comments. We ask for other people’s opinion/insight and try to respect cultural, religious, ethnic, age and gender differences. We try to find commonalities with people we're communicating with like shared friends, interests, events and build relationships based on this. Focus on the positive and not the negative. We try to make eye contact without staring, don’t show distaste or boredom by yawning, frowning, shifting my weight, crossed arms, roving eyes, looking away, interrupting, talking in a loud, angry or monotone voice, etc.
Kinesics is the study of body movements in communication. Knowing the nine categories of this study can help improve nonverbal communication skills.

As a result, children could fail their exam or could not find a job in the future. In addition, the author also argues that it is difficult to control children through texting. Children usually use the messages as codes to hide some things. As a result, parents hardly to understand and control their children. Both authors mention the using of abbreviations in messages.
