Joint Attention /Engagment Training and Autism

Joint attention is the process in which an infant learns to recognize the direction of an adult's gaze, orient their own gaze to follow it, and then look in the same direction.

Joint engagement is the process in which an infant learns to involve themselves with the same object or event as another person.

Some people believe that joint attention and joint engagement are key skills that need to be developed before a child can develop other skills such as social communication and social interaction.

There are numours interventions which are designed to improve joint attention and joint engagement amongst other skills in people on the autism spectrum including some behavioural and developmental interventions.
