Thinking About You Thinking About Me: Philosophy and strategies to further develop perspective taking and communicative abilities for persons with Asperger ... Autism, Hyperlexia, ADHD, PDD-NOS, NVLD by Michelle Garcia WinnerThis book was written for clinicians who teach social thinking (or pragmatic speech) to children and adults. As a layman though, I got a lot out of it. The big picture is that in order to communicate effectively, the speaker needs to be able to take in the other persons perspective. This is something that is an organic development for most children, but can be challenging for people with Aspbergers, NLD, autism, etc. Just describing the problem is helpful, but Winner also provides practical suggestions on how to build perspective taking skills, how to read non-verbal cues, and the hidden rules of conversation.

Students with social cognitive learning deficits face enormous challenges not only in their day-to-day relations with the world around them, but also in the fact that few professionals, educational or medical, understand the core of these student's deficits. One fundamental deficit relates to perspective taking - the ability of one person to consider the point of view and motives of another. Although this sounds like a simple process, it is in fact a hugely complex task that is crucial to successful interpersonal relations, and is a skill that anyone with a social cognition disability will struggle with. This book addresses the different ways this problem can present itself, the current thinking on how to approach the problem and a wealth of exercises and activities that can immediately be applied to the student. Illustrated with clear diagrams and tables, and with photocopiable handouts, this accessible text will be invaluable for anyone assessing, living with or teaching children and adults with this most abstract of all learning disabilities.
It provides a framework for deconstructing our social interactions in a systematic manner that makes sense to our students. A comprehensive Social Thinking teaching guide, every page has treatment and assessment ideas to help move us toward more effective teaching. This is where to start to learn more about social interaction and social awareness. Understanding the perspectives of others is key to all interpersonal relationships. Many students, including those with high-functioning autism, Asperger syndrome, ADHD and similar social and communication challenges, have difficulties understanding that other people have perspectives that are different from their own.
