Language, Literacy, and Theory of Mind in Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Students: What sign language interpreters need to know.

Presented by Dr. Brenda Schick, Ph.D – Professor and Chair, Speech, Language, & Hearing Sciences, University of Colorado, Boulder.

The acquisition of a Theory of Mind (ToM) is an important milestone in the development of social cognitive skills, allowing children to understand that people can differ in their beliefs and understandings. ToM is important in literacy skills, socio-pragmatic skills, and academic success.  This workshop will describe ToM and causes for its delayed acquisition in deaf children.  We will discuss how ToM is represented in spoken & sign language.

This event is Auslan interpreted. Livestreaming is not available for this event.
