Perspective taking refers to the ability to determine mental states of others in order to explain or predict behavior. In typically developing children, this skill appears around age 4 years (Baron-Cohen, Leslie, & Frith, 1985), but it is delayed or absent in children with autism. In the present study, video modeling was used to teach perspective taking to three children with autism. A multiple-baseline design across children and within child across tasks was used to assess learning…

Perspective-taking is an area of human functioning that is rarely studied by behavior analysts but likely entails a complex repertoire of verbal and relational behavior. Perspective-taking is
Teaching a perspective-taking component skill to children with autism in the natural environment.
TLDR
How this component skill may be related to teaching further skills related to perspective taking such as tacting what others know, predicting future behavior based upon one's beliefs, and creating false beliefs in others for the purpose of adaptive deceptive behaviors such as keeping secrets, surprises, and bluffing during games is discussed.
