Example text

Communication is meant to convey information from one person to another person or to other people (or, indeed, to animals). This information can be conveyed by both verbal and non-verbal means. Much of the information conveyed by babies and very young children is by non-verbal means, for example by pointing and by gesturing, by posture and by facial expressions. Non-verbal communication allows us to some degree to get others to do what we want for us. Non-verbal communication is also very good at revealing our attitudes, for example our like or dislike of something or someone, how interested we are in something or someone and even our understanding of what someone else is saying.
