Three studies investigated the effects of pedagogical cues to artist´s referential intention on 2- and 2.5-year-old children´s understanding of drawings in a matching task without verbal labels support. Results showed that pedagogical cues, the combination of the artist´s eye gaze while she was creating the drawings (non-linguistic cues) and verbal descriptions about her graphic actions (linguistic cues), enabled 2-year-olds to match highly realistic line-drawings with referents. However, 2-year-olds´ performance was not influenced to an equal degree by non-linguistic and linguistic cues; verbal scripts appeared to be the critical aspect of pedagogical demonstration even with pre-drawn pictures. By contrast, at 2.5 years of age, children inferred the artist´s intention when comprehending drawings in the absence of pedagogical cues. This research illustrates the potential power of pedagogical demonstration to communicate referential intentions in the pictorial symbol domain.
