Perspective Taking: Teaching and Practicing Social Skills in the Classroom
Perspective taking occurs through observation of another’s behavior which allows for future prediction of how they might behave during a different point in time based on events that may not be directly observable. Given the diagnostic requirements of autism, deficits in perspective taking are prevalent. Research has shown a variety of ways to teach individuals with autism perspective-taking skills. These skills can benefit individuals with autism, given their relation to understanding and building relationships with others. Perspective taking is an equally important skill for professionals in the field to understand and practice regularly. In this presentation, we will discuss what perspective taking is and review strategies to teach and practice perspective taking in the classroom environment. Using exercises and examples, we’ll practice strategies for perspective taking in the classroom.
