  • Overview

    Joint attention, one of the defining characteristics of social interactions that becomes impaired in children with autism, is a developmental milestone of great importance to researchers and clinicians alike. With early detection of autism spectrum disorder, children can receive better treatments to gain more exposure and training for critical social processes. But is it possible for early detection of joint attention deficits, even in infancy, to one day serve as diagnostic markers for the disease? Joining host Paul Rokuskie to discuss the state of research and awareness on this developmental milestone for children with autism are Dr. Daniel Messinger, Developmental Psychologist and Professor of Psychology, Pediatrics, and Engineering at the University of Miami, and Devon Gangi, PhD candidate in the Department of Psychology, also at the University of Miami.
