Traditionally, studies on child development have a fragmented perspective as the study of the importance of mother to child development or studies of how one’s action affects the other. Studies on language acquisition follow the same pattern. In this study, we seek to understand how the unity individual creation / social joint transformation is established in communicative social contexts of a child, Pê, with atypical development, who has delay in speech and language development. We assume an integrating perspective of human processes in a theoretical and epistemological approach in which the individual is not limited to effects from the external environment. This theoretical perspective is called Theory of Subjectivity in a Cultural-Historical Perspective (González Rey, 2000, 2005, 2015), in which subjectivity is historically situated as the specific quality of processes and human phenomena inseparable from the person living conditions, although it is not a direct and linear expression of these conditions This theoretical approach is methodologically supported from the principles of Qualitative Epistemology. The research occurred throughout the year when the boy attended speech therapy sessions. The role of the other and of the affect in the direction for this other; an extraversion characterized by openness to new experiences; the security and confidence that are organized by the stability of family relationships that favor the expression of his individuality; the emotional stability that organizes security for facing new situations can be understood as the set of subjective senses Pê organizes to face communications impasses.
