May 29th PWS Awareness Tip & Fact of the Day by Samuel

Theory of Mind is a developmental process where a child learns to empathize and see the world through other people’s eyes.

What we need to understand is that this behavior isn’t a choice, it has simply not been learned yet. Soft and frequent reminders of how others see the world can help to develop this skill. Today is the 29th day of PWS Awareness Month.
