ELGIER, Angel M.  y  TORTELLO, Camila. Early communication and social vulnerability: setting a research agenda. Anu. investig. [online]. 2014, vol.21, n.1, pp.339-345. ISSN 1851-1686.

The development of communication during infancy involves a wide range of processes related to either environmental or individual aspects. One of its most important components is joint attention. Although there are a variety of definitions depending on the authors, they all agree that joint attention is the visual coordination between two people forwards an object. This phenomenon includes the acquisition of some kinds of behaviors such as: gaze following, social reference, gestures and monitoring. On the other hand, social vulnerability is a risk factor studied in relation to different variables, for example memory, executive functions and mental pathologies. However, there is scarce literature concerning the relation between social vulnerability and early communicative development. Regarding this, it would be interesting to focus on these abilities, review some literature and think about possible future programs designed to prevent vulnerable environment effects.

Palabras clave : Communication; Development; Social vulnerability; Infancy; Joint attention.
