What is Joint Attention?

Joint attention is a huge part of learning to effectively communicate. Young children with autism often have trouble communicating. This means young children with autism also may struggle with  employing joint attention effectively, without a little help. Using joint attention explicitly with students with autism will be a game changer in helping our youngest learners to communicate. Children with autism that have been shown and taught joint attention in preschool have higher success academically, socially, and in work and living independently. Building communication skills with joint attention is so important and this live course will give you easy to use strategies to help you with using joint attention to help your students with autism in their communication goals immediately! 

When thinking about joint attention, we really need to just think about playing together. Our students with autism often have trouble with making eye contact or using social skills to express what they want in a play situation. By building these joint attention skills, strides in learning communication are huge! When our autisitc learners engage in joint attention activities, those foundational communication skills are built, like taking turns. Learners can also build on those receptive and expressive language skills, which are building blocks to more communicative ways.

ABA Speech and Joint Attention

One of the ways an SLP can really make strides in communication with our toddler and preschool age students is through joint attention and I believe in tried and true strategies that I have used and perfected over the years! The activities for joint attention are endless. Start with books and bubbles to cars and singing! The course will also delve into creating actionable, appropriate goals for joint attention with our students.  Want more specifics?
