What Happens at Home: How Family Discourse Fosters Social Perspective-Taking in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

In this article, we provide a brief review of the pivotal role family discourse plays in the development of social perspective-taking. We begin with an overview of the important role social perspective-taking plays in children’s well-being, and the host of benefits that can be gained by fostering perspective-taking skills. Next, we review the scientific literature on the role the family environment plays in the development of social perspective-taking skills, in turn discussing the role of both parents and siblings. In doing so, we include research on children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and typically-developing children and identify key areas where further research is needed.
