dc.description.abstract It has been proposed that autism is fundamentally a disorder of social relatedness. Severe deficits in theory of mind (ToM) - or the ability to understand that other people can have mental states different from our own and that these mental states influence behaviour - are commonly thought to explain the social-communicative deficits seen in autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). If deficits in ToM are responsible for the impairments found in ASD, these deficits should be found amongst all individuals with ASD (universality) and must be present throughout the course of the disorder (stability). en_ZA
