It’s Not Just Talk

Communication isn’t just talk. We communicate through our facial expressions, our movements – or lack of movement – and our body language. Children with social difficulties often have difficulty deciphering non-verbal messages, which often leads to difficulties in many different areas of their lives.

What can we do to help them?

The well-known psychiatrist, Dr. Roni Hagash, gave a workshop to the entire therapeutic staff of both Achiya Developmental Centers on this subject. She peppered her lecture with personal stories that exemplified her very practical advice on how to help children overcome communication difficulties, wiht an emphasis on deciphering the nuances of both verbal and non-verbal communication.

Dr. Roni Hagash donated her lecture fee to Achiya. It was used to purchase a musical instrument for the music room. THANK YOU DR. HAGASH!
