Description

This research project will provide new observational methods for the study of joint attention, and it will further the formulation of theories of communication development that situate learning processes important to the acquisition of language and social cognition in early child-caregiver interactions. Moreover, its early and expanded view of joint engagement during caregiver-child interactions in autism spectrum disorders and in other developmental disorders and its longitudinal analyses of the impact of joint attention problems on child outcome is relevant to public health efforts to formulate more effective early diagnosis and intervention strategies.
