This hour long class covers the following points:
º From birth, children show interest in other people. By late infancy, they engage with others through joint attention. Joint attention is sharing attention between objects and other people.
º Around one year of age, children recognize the importance of other people’s eyes. They begin to follow others’ eye gaze.
º Children’s gaze following predicts other developmental outcomes, like language development. Sharing eye gaze doesn’t come as naturally to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This can affect their language and communication skills.
