Social Interaction

Observe this third video clip of André, which also was made on 11-11-2008 at Viataal (now Kentalis) te St. Michielsgestel, Netherlands. The first two clips can de seen on the previous page: Stimulated  and Unstimulated Behaviour.

When I give Andre the small ball, you can see that a kind of social interaction develops between us. This clip shows that he is willing to leave his own world of self-stimulation when another person becomes attuned to his emotional level (in this case, giving and receiving an object).

This kind of interaction may lead to communication, where Andre uses a signal (e.g. making a “No” sign with his hands) to indicate that he wants to stop.
