Communicating and socialising effectively is an integral part of children’s development. So how do we best support this area of development? By observing the filmed sequences in this program, viewers can develop observation skills, deepen thinking, and increase knowledge of this important area of development. This program presents rich examples of communication that focus on nonverbal communication, differing developmental stages (with twins), three word sentences, leadership, cooperation, withdrawal, conflict, and more. The sequences especially highlight how communication is at the heart of healthy social and emotional development. The sequences are arranged chronologically by age from 15 months to 6.5 years.
