Webinar 1: Early social interaction
Making contact, body distance, sharing attention, and how to be responsive to:

  • Utterances and initiatives – sounds, movements, gestures
  • Emotional signals

Video examples will be used and each group will have the opportunity to analyze the videos to see what is working well in each interaction.
