The purpose of this research is to examine how children of color with autism learn how to perspective-take, which means putting themselves in other people’s shoes and understanding other points of view. Specifically, this research looks at how parents teach perspective-taking to their child, and how that helps their child develop perspective-taking. This study will collect the ways parents teach perspective-taking to children of color with autism and find which ones are most effective in improving perspective-taking. Parents will be completing demographics questionnaires and an interview regarding how perspective-taking is taught at home. Only the parents are needed for this study.
