Podcast: Joint attention is a behavior cusp skill. (0.5 CEUs)

Kelly Bermingham delves into 'Joint Attention', and provides strategies to create an MO for this important behavioral cusp skill. 25 minutes (0.5 CEUs)

Coordinated eye gaze and shared experiences with others, known as joint attention, is considered a prerequisite skill for other skills, including imitation, social engagement, and communication – a behavior cusp skill. Teaching this skill is often left out of ABA programs because it is challenging to teach, and requires very thoughtful and specific planning. Hear more from Kelly about this topic.
