Abstract: Theory of mind refers to the ability of a child to understand that people have different thoughts, wants, and beliefs, and a person's behavior can be predicted based on what he or she thinks or believes. Although children develop an understanding of theory of mind at roughly four years of age, research has shown that deaf children can experience significant delays in understanding the concept. This article discusses the concept of theory of mind in regard to deaf children, and reports the results of an NIDCD-funded study that investigates whether deaf children are equally delayed in their theory-of-mind skills for tasks that employ language as well as tasks that do not.
