Communication, joint attention and gesturing

Orson is now able to divide his attention between two points of interest – joint attention. In this chapter we see a lovely example of this new emerging social skill as Mum reads a book to him. We look at the  cues Mum picks up on in the way Orson communicates his thoughts and needs.

Good for looking at

  • Books

  • Babies
