Communication is language in action, in communities and between individuals.

Some children have trouble communicating to connect with other socially even though they are able to speak clearly and express their thoughts through grammatical language.

Communication involves conveying ideas, feelings or other information from one person to at least one other person.
We do most of our communicating using spoken language, but communcation can be achieved using many other strategies and tools.  Often for example, we accompany spoken communication with facial expression and gestures to convey our feelings.
Written language is another important channel of communication. We read newspapers, write letters and postcards, use computers and send messages around the world using electronic mail systems.
