Parental Teaching of Theory of Mind in Children of Color with Autism

Research Study

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.
