Theory of Mind Training and Autism

Theory of mind training programmes are designed to teach people on the autism spectrum how to recognise mental states (thoughts, beliefs, desires, intentions, and emotions) in oneself or others, and to be able to make sense of and predict actions.

There are a variety of programmes designed to teach theory of mind. For example, some programmes are based on teaching children to visualise other people's thoughts and emotions by imagining those thoughts and emotions as pictures or thought bubbles.
