Describe the communication requirements of different audiences Knowing your audience helps you to choose which form of communication to use, for example, if I was speaking to a child I would speak calmly with a slightly high pitched voice as its more soothing towards the child, where as if I was talking to a teacher I would speak in my normal tone, depending on my relationship with the teacher, where as if I was talking to someone very important I would speak in a polite, professional manner.

We both can speak up when the situation warrants us to and remain a bystander if that is what is required. We communicate well with each other and are direct with situations we need to relay. We do not dance around a topic, we can also usually tell when the other person is not being 100% truthful with expressing how they feel about a particular circumstance.

The skills needed to communicate with children and young people are listening, positive body language (nodding and sitting forward), eye contact, engaging fully in the conversation in a professional manner and offering feedback and able to talk and respond to children, young people or adults at their level of understanding which is appropriate to their age.
