Abstract

This study describes non verbal communication between babies aged 3 to 10 months and rasied in day nurseries in a situation observed and filmed (camera video and magnetoscop) by four specialists of early child development in a « natural » setting of free exchange with parents. An analysis of specific signals used to establish, reinforce and interrupt the communication is included in a longitudinal observation of the activities of both parents and children, the variability of the gestual communication is associated to the style of parents attitudes towards the child and the individual characteristics of each member of the parent- child dyad, Thus it seems that the apparition of verbal communication in related also from to a background of mimetic and gestual expression.
