Communication Challenges

How To Help Children And Youth With Communication Challenges: Interpersonal, Emotional, Social

Argues And/Or Withholds; Does Not Know How To Settle Arguments With Words; Cannot Communicate Easily Or Effectively; Withdrawn; Over-Stimulated; Not Aware Of Impact Of Communication Given; Over-Reactive To Communication Received

Without help, these challenges can establish patterns making all social relations very difficult throughout life. They can erode self-esteem. These types of learned unhelpful listening and speaking habits are different from communication challenges due to neurological conditions (see below). Communication challenges can be due to a combination of: a build up of habits the child or youth has developed to cope; nutritional imbalances; exposure to environmental pollutants; lack of training in how to manage anger and fear; prolonged stress; family communication patterns; ineffective role models; perceptual challenges; emotional challenges; low emotional and social intelligence levels; copying media and poor role models; anxiety; depression or other mental illnesses; low self-esteem; much body tension; physical and emotional traumas; abuses of any kind; genetics; stress; impatient adults; body tension; painful physical or psychological disorganization due to accidents, abuses of all kinds and trauma; or difficult birth. Poor communication habits can affect auditory processing (the brain becomes unable to figure out what the sounds mean ) and can contribute to challenges with language and/or speech and/or listening. Further challenges can develop through having to use a second language without help.
