Acts of dyadic orienting (responses to attention bids by a researcher) and acts of joint attention (e.g. pointing and showing behaviors) were observed in preschool children with autism and children with developmental delay. Children with autism responded to fewer adult vocal and non-vocal attention bids that were made singly and by combining modalities (e.g. name call plus touch). Sensitivity in dyadic orienting was significantly related to child-initiated acts of joint attention (IJA… Expand
Atypical monitoring and responsiveness to goal-directed gaze in autism spectrum disorder
TLDR
A diminished monitoring and responsivity to social cues signalling goal-directedness might impact on the ability to understand other’s action goals in young children with ASD. Expand
Gaze Performance in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder when Observing Communicative Actions
TLDR
It is found that in AD, accuracy of performance was specifically related to adaptive communication skills, and the latency of correct gaze shifts is related to verbal intelligence. Expand
The effect of emotional intensity on responses to joint attention in preschoolers with an autism spectrum disorder
Abstract Background Responding to joint attention (RJA) is reduced in young children with ASD despite being vital to the early development of social communication. For this reason, RJA is a frequentExpand
Exploring the Nature of Joint Attention Impairments in Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: Associated Social and Cognitive Skills
TLDR
Responsibility to joint attention was related to intention understanding, whereas the number of joint attention initiations was associated with attention disengagement, and somewhat less stronger with social preference. Expand

Abstract The current study investigated social behaviors, including initiating joint attention (IJA), responding to joint attention (RJA), social orienting, and imitation in 14 children with anExpand

TLDR
A significant relationship between social turn taking and joint attention is found, but not between nonsocial turn taking or joint attention, and the importance of considering social turn take in interactions between young children with autism and their caregivers is supported. Expand

Dyadic and Triadic Behaviours in Infancy as Precursors to Later Social Responsiveness in Young Children with Autistic Disorder
TLDR
The results are consistent with the view that early dyadic and triadic behaviours, particularly sharing attention, are important for the development of later social responsiveness. Expand
Teaching children with autism to attend to socially relevant stimuli
Abstract Research has shown that children with autism often fail to attend to relevant stimuli in social situations, likely resulting in unsuccessful or absent social interactions. The purpose ofExpand

TLDR
Embedding social interactions into reinforcers resulted in increases in child-initiated social engagement during communication, improved nonverbal dyadic orienting, and improvements in general child affect. Expand

Attention and joint attention in preschool children with autism.
TLDR
Results suggest a specific developmental delay in which children with autism rely on the presence of objects in the visual field to guide action and the relation between this problem and autistic children's difficulties with human communicative signals is discussed. Expand
Children with Autism Fail to Orient to Naturally Occurring Social Stimuli
TLDR
It was found that, compared to children with Down syndrome or typical development, children with autism more frequently failed to orient to all stimuli, and that this failure was much more extreme for social stimuli. Expand
Targets and cues: gaze-following in children with autism.
TLDR
Testing school-aged autistic children across three different contexts demonstrated that a sizeable proportion of children with autism did not have difficulties with following another's head turn, and the ability to orient to another person's head and gaze was facilitated by increasing children's attention to environmental targets and social cues.

Joint attention and language in autism and developmental language delay
TLDR
DLD children's performance suggests no special impairment of joint attention skills, whereas autistic children'sperformance suggests a joint attention deficit in addition to a language deficit. Expand

TLDR
Although joint attention was associated with later social and language symptoms it was unrelated to repetitive and stereotyped symptoms, suggesting the latter may have a separate developmental trajectory. Expand
