Children’s joint attention in AAC (short summary)

Children’s
joint
attention
in
AAC

This study investigated infants' attention in situations that involved an infant, adult, storybook and potential aided AAC system. Differences in infants' attention depended on the physical location of the AAC system, infants' age, activity levels and cognitive skills and adults' interactive styles. Though the infants in this study did not have any developmental disabilities, results suggest that these factors may be important in children's interactions with AAC systems generally.

Background One aspect of infant development that is important to social engagement and communication is joint attention. This refers to the relationship among a child, the caregiver and another object. For example, joint attention is evident if an infant and her sister are looking at a book together. This situation is made more complex if the child has access to an aided communication system, which becomes another component in the interaction between an infant and the people and objects in the surrounding environment.
