Nonverbal Gestures

When conveying information we often rely on the audience to use their previous knowledge to link information related to the task at hand. Young people with autism, do not do this as readily and benefit from 'extra' nonverbal gesturers to be included or embedded with the primary spoken information. This would mean in real world actions to include signing actions such as moving your palm forward at the same time as saying stop and images or symbols to illustrate the point better.
