Perspective Taking is the ability to consider a situation from a different point of view. It is the ability to look beyond your view point and consider how someone else may think or feel about a situation. You need to be able to put yourself in another person’s position and imagine how they might feel, think, or act. In order to be successful at perspective taking, you must have empathy for the other person and realize that there are many correct perspectives for one situation. Below you will find resources you can use at home to help teach this important skill to your child.
