Social stories may help children with autism because of the hypothesis that individuals with autism lack a “theory of mind” (Baron-Cohen, Leslie, & Frith, 1985; Frith & Frith, 2003). It is proposed that having a theory of mind allows us to understand another person’s perspectives, desires and beliefs.
Having a theory of mind is a bit like being able to say you're able to “put yourself in another person’s shoes”. A test called the Sally Anne Testhas been used to investigate this with children with autism.
