It is therefore important to investigate socio comunicative and skills shared attention, as well as check the communicative intentions of babies in the early mother-infant interactions, if babies interpret the adult behavior as intentional and the potential relationship between contexts of shared attention, intentional communication and language acquisition. The present study aimed to present data relating to socio comunicative skills and shared attention in typical babies in early childhood, trying to identify the two skills mentioned and highlighted in babies in four distinct periods observed, as well as the different settings in each age.

Video observations recorded were held in the homes of the participants, in a situation of playing with toys previously selected, for twenty minutes. The analysis of the observations were identified marcos on evolutionary trajectory and different configurations socio comunicative and shared attention on díades. It was found that the purchase of intentional communication and the different contexts of shared attention reassigned and extend the course of interactions, in every age.
