A Practical Guide for Teachers and Parents. Teaching Children with Autism to Mind-Read explores the relationship of "theory of mind" deficits to other areas of children's functioning and describes existing experimental work that has attempted to enhance the skills associated with understanding others' minds. The authors provide practical guidelines for helping children with autism spectrum conditions to improve their understanding of beliefs, emotions and pretense. The authors tackle specific problematic issues including: How to interpret facial expressions; How to recognise feelings of anger, sadness, fear and happiness; How feelings are affected by what happens and what is expected to happen and more.
