Theory of mind, development, and deafness

(p.51) Chapter 4 Theory of mind, development, and deafness
Understanding Other Minds

Henry M. Wellman

We briefly review theory of mind development in typically developing children. With that background we consider two further topics in more depth. First we overview new, insightful methods that reveal more clearly how theory of mind unfolds over development. Then we examine theory of mind development in deaf children. We argue that research on theory of mind progressions and including research contrasting typical development with that of deaf children of hearing parents is especially revealing of the nature and development of theory of mind.

Keywords:   social cognition, theory of mind, developmental methods, deafness
