  • Happy World Kindness Day! Today we get to celebrate one of our favorite things – kindness. We get to witness many acts of kindness each day, but do we ever take a moment to recognize those things (even if small) that are kind? Do we ever take the time or resources to do things that are intentionally kind for others?
    We get to celebrate niceness today, so let’s go all out! We are including an article with some ideas to help jumpstart the kindness, but we REALLY want to celebrate the kindness with YOU. What are some of the kind things you have witnessed today, or even this past week? Did someone pay for your coffee? Did a stranger volunteer to take your shopping cart back to the store just because? Did you witness someone giving someone a kind word?
    Here’s to kindness every day of the year!

This ability is knows as Theory of Mind (ToM), and it is a skill that those on the Autism Spectrum have a difficult time developing. In our guest blog post today, Intern Gabrielle Stowe talks about ToM and what its development looks like in the early stages of communication.

    Gabrielle Stowe is a current student at UFL and Intern at Dogwood Developmental Therapy in Hampstead, NC. You can find her at @speechyandbeachy

    Theory of Mind - Therapy Travelers

    During a conversation with another person, we are constantly modifying our responses based on the feedback we receive. This includes not only the other person's words, but their facial expressions, actions, and gestures. Our response to a person who is crying will differ greatly from our response to a person who is laughing.
