Mind Matters: Fostering Theory of Mind in Young Children with Hearing Loss

Social emotional skills are the foundation to functional relationships with friends, family and peers. Theory of Mind is a critical component of social emotional development that allows people to take the perspective of others. Due to a variety of converging factors, research has shown that many children with hearing loss have delayed or disordered Theory of Mind development, negatively impacting their ability to form strong relationships with others. These deficits, which may appear even in infancy, have the potential to ripple across an individual’s lifespan. It is therefore essential to teach Early Interventionists how to coach families on goals, activities and strategies to target pre-Theory of Mind skills in order to minimize deficits before they occur. This workshop is tailored to therapists working in Early Intervention. It will present an overview of typical and atypical Theory of Mind development within the wider context of social emotional skills in order to provide therapists with a foundation to explain why it is a critical component of therapy. Throughout the workshop, participants will receive resources that they can take back to their clinic and share with their clients. Participants will also receive specific activities that target the pre-development of Theory of Mind. Through collaboration and group work, participants will discover why it is critical to target these skills when children are under 3 years old, and will feel empowered to begin implementing activities, strategies and resources during their next therapy session.

  • Analyze typical and atypical development of Theory of Mind within the realm of Social Emotional Development
  • Apply learned information about Theory of Mind to your current caseload
  • Evaluate research articles pertaining to Theory of Mind and children with and without hearing loss
