Joint Attention and Language in Autism and Developmental Language Delay.
Loveland, Katherine A.; Landry, Susan H.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v16 n3 p335-49 Sep 1986
Gestural joint attention behaviors, personal pronoun use, and spontaneous communicative behavior were compared in 11 autistic children and 11 children with developmental language delay (DLD). DLD children responded correctly to joint attention interactions more often and their spontaneous gestural behavior was more communicative and developmentally advanced than the autistic subjects.
