What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
‘This is a much-awaited revision of Howlin, Baron-Cohen, and Hadwin's 1998 volume Teaching Children with Autism to Mind-Read that includes expanded lessons and concepts to teach high-functioning children with autism about mental states. The approach is importantly developmental – based on prior research and progressive sequences of concepts and stages of instruction.  It includes multiple foci, including teaching about differences in perspectives, about beliefs, about knowing, about emotions, and more. No one thinks that teaching mental-state understandings will address all the social-cognitive challenges faced by children with autism, but understanding the mental states of self and other is an acknowledged and crucial challenge for these children (and adults) and one that this workbook carefully and effectively addresses. It is a lively and practical book that will be a tremendous resource for parents as well as educators.’
Henry Wellman, Harold W. Stevenson Collegiate Professor of Psychology, University of Michigan
