Course: #6293 Level: Intermediate1 Hour 53 Reviews

Theory of Mind has been thought to be a core deficit in children with autism. A child who is impaired in the ability to understand what another can perceive, what another can know and what another can believe will find it difficult to navigate social situations and understand basic stories and conversations. Theory of Mind can be taught on a developmental basis. Not only will this make a great difference to your student, it is fun! In this course, you will learn what Theory of Mind is and creative ways to teach it through stories and games.
