dc.description.abstract “Theory of mind” (ToM) refers to the ability to understand and make inferences about other people’s intentions, feelings and beliefs. The fact that previous research shows an impairment in social competence following traumatic brain injury (TBI) alludes to a potential relationship between TBI and ToM. Although the relationship between paediatric TBI (pTBI) and ToM ability is relatively unexplored, especially within a South African context, previous research on TBI and ToM suggests social impairment following TBI. The current research project was aimed to investigate exactly that. The study reported here investigated this relationship, and specifically focused on the effects of pTBI on ToM ability in 9-15 year old children. en_ZA
