- Individuals with ASD, by diagnostic criteria, inherently have challenges in communication. In typical development, use of eye contact for a variety of functions can be observed early in infancy. Joint attention is a triadic interaction between a child, caregiver, and external entity. Through joint attention experiences, children learn about their environment, and expand their vocabulary. Participants will be introduced to the developmental trajectory, different forms of joint attention, and implications for language acquisition.
1. Discuss typical development of joint attention.
2. Differentiate responding to joint attention (RJA) versus initiating joint attention (IJA).
3. Develop treatment objectives for individuals with ASD focusing on joint attention and vocabulary expansion.
