Research on the trajectory of maternal mental state input to infants indicates that mothers tend to talk about cognitive states later than they talk about desire states (Degotardi & Torr, 2007; Taumoepeau & Ruffman, 2006, 2008), suggesting that, perhaps, optimal contexts for labelling their children’s cognitive experiences arise later in development. 9 10 THEORY OF MIND Mental state talk to preschoolers elaborates theory Returning to the question of how parental conversation about mental states promotes children’s ToM, we propose that once children have acquired the vocabulary for referring to mental states and experiences, parental conversation may serve to expand on the ‘theory’ of mind, by making explicit causal connections between the world, different people’s mental states, and their behaviour.

This pattern was consistent, but the specifics differed by group. g. 05). g. g. 02 (not significant). Thus in the ASD group, explanatory talk about desires and emotions was related to the child’s ToM. We proposed that this could reflect mothers’ sensitivity to their children’s interests and levels of understanding since concepts and words for desire and emotion are generally acquired earlier than those for cognition (Bretherton & Beeghly, 1982). In sum, our studies using the MMSII and analysis of maternal input have shown that mothers who, in conversation with their children, regularly explain the subjectivity of mental states and how they cause behaviour, tend to have children who are relatively advanced in their ToM.

While there is a general consensus that caregiver–child interaction is related to children’s ToM performance, there is little agreement on (a) which precise facets of interpersonal engagement with caregivers are most important in facilitating children’s understanding of mind, or (b) the mechanisms via which such engagement impacts on ToM development. The developmental pathways leading to children’s understanding of mind are unclear because no firm conclusions can be drawn on the basis of existing data regarding whether specific aspects of the child’s interpersonal experiences predict ToM performance independently of one another.
