Anyone working with children knows about the current debate surrounding the need for development of effective communication skills. This book examines aspects of communication, and considers how a positive learning environment can nurture a good understanding of communication.

Teaching Assistants will find this book helps them to acquire a portfolio of skills and strategies that they can call on to provide optimum support when working with children in a variety of situations. Contents include:

- an exploration of current issues, such as the difference between home and school language

- how to communicate material and information effectively to pupils so that learning is optimised

- a consideration of the needs of particular groups of speakers

- what might be the consequences of poor communication skills, and how to address these difficulties

The content of the book relates to both Early Years and Primary, and there are case studies from a variety of settings.
