Theory of Mind: Learning Social Skills from the Bottom Up is a therapy plan for children with high functioning autism/Asperger’s, published by Linguisystems and written by Carol Krakower.
Theory of Mind is developing the ability to take the perspective of others. Recently published work on mirror neurons tells us that we do not think through this. Your child will learn to experience what others can see, what others can know, what others can believe.
Other social skills programs teach your child to follow social rules. This program is different. At Cornerstone Speech & Language, we believe that your child has to understand Theory of Mind first. We call it bottom-up social skills. We use games, childhood stories, costumes and dramatic play. It’s fun. It works. It can make a world of difference for your child.
