Theory of Mind and children with hearing loss

Explore this section

Theory of Mind is the ability to understand that other people have different beliefs, desires, intentions and perspectives from our own. Theory of Mind enables us to understand, explain and predict how other people might behave. Theory of Mind is often delayed in children with hearing loss, particularly in children who are oral only.

We have selected articles from respected sources to help you better understand Theory of Mind and deaf children and the actions you can take to assist your child to understand how others might think and feel.
