Helping the Child Who Doesn't Fit In
Stephen Nowicki, Marshall P. Duke
This book offers parents, teachers, and caretakers a guide to the puzzle of social rejection and its relationship to non-verbal language. An introduction describes the disability of "dyssemia," a difficulty in using and understanding nonverbal signs and signals, and provides symptoms of this disability. Part 1 discusses the six areas of nonverbal communication and provides tips on how to remedy problems in these areas. These tips can be used on an as-needed basis, and many of them involve the same aids recommended for the assessment process, including trips to shopping malls and use of TV and videotapes. Part 2 discusses formal and informal approaches to remediation, and also provides some further insights as to the physical and emotional causes of nonverbal communication deficits. (Contains 17 references.)
