Joint Attention and Toddler Characteristics: Race, Sex and Socioeconomic Status.
Saxon, Terrill F.; Reilly, John T.
Early Child Development and Care, v149 p59-69 Feb 1999
Investigated the relationship between joint attention and toddler's race, sex, and SES. Found that joint attention related to a "persisting" mother, whether or not the toddler accepted the initial maternal bid. Females engaged in joint attention bouts and nonpersistent maternal responses after the bid was accepted more often than males. Race and SES were unrelated to joint attention. (Author/KB)
