Joint Attention Mediated Learning

Joint attention mediated learning is a parent-led intervention for toddlers with autism that is designed to increase joint attention.

JAML is based on the idea that a parent can increase and improve their child's language, social, and cognitive development by incresing and improving their joint attention.

JAML incorporates developmentally appropriate approaches, family centered principles, socially based learning, and infusion within natural routines to promote generalisation.
