As a speech and language pathologist, I had a little fun with this acrostic poem.
Others, using various
Understanding and expression of language:
Contact, facial expression, body language,
Tone of voice. Of course, verbal language
Is the alternative;
One that requires lots of
Nifty words….spoken and signed.

This photo illustrates how nonverbal language can effectively communicate a state of mind, often better than verbal language. The sweet, blue dress that I’m wearing in this photo was either made by an aunt or a cousin’s aunt. I really didn’t like it at all. I don’t like to use the word hate, but….I. Hated. It. Growing up, I preferred trousers to dresses and despised anything that was scratchy. Let me just say, I never wore that dress again. I’m pretty sure I successfully communicated that sentiment to my mother without saying a word.
