Abstract
The article discusses the role of a mental model and separately a mechanism of joint attention in the normative age development of preschool children. It is shown that children with joint attention deficit may have difficulty acquiring a wide range of developmental skills, and the ability to use the direction of sight is part of the overall mechanism. This mechanism will allow to further interpret and understand the meaning of social information, the child’s ability to accumulate normal social experience. It was found that the typically developing children, children with a lower developmental limit and a delayed age development, the differences between them may be related to the fact that children participating in joint attention have more conditions for expanding opportunities for social learning. Changes in the accuracy indicators of identifying the direction of sight demonstrate the dynamics of the cognitive development of the child. In comparison, this makes it possible to assess the characteristic differences not only with pathology, but also with a decrease in the overall level of age development.
