Perspective Taking – Homework Assignment Lisa Flower

Social Skills:
Perspective Taking
Homework Assignment

This is a great assignment to give following the Developing Empathy and Conversations activity. It begins with an extensive discussion on helping individuals on the autism spectrum develop perspective taking and empathy, including some of my professional experiences. A homework handout follows, requiring students to observe real-life social interactions and to “put themselves in another’s shoes”. The handout ends by asking what actions the student could have taken to improve a social situation for a person in distress, thereby tying observation and interpretation to troubleshooting and taking action.
