This is such great information to share. I tried the mapping/re-mapping technique with my son and it was like watching a little cartoon lightbulb go on above his head. I keep thinking of new ways to use this, to help him see the impact his behavior has on others...

And, I'm wondering if it works in a pre-emptive way?

I do wish I could be a fly on the wall (or in the audience) of that workshop.

Thanks for sharing your expertise!!! And thanks to Susan for hosting such a great network of information!!


Thanks to people like you and Susan...and many many more I hope being a good=knowing more, mom...one day...

Wonderful. This one's a keeper! It reminds me that our kids psychosocial development (NT and otherwise) really does follow a pattern, with empathy being something that can and does emerge at this age, but that it often needs to be taught. Hence the expressions on the other characters' faces. Bravo.

Thank-you, thank-you, for explaining this. I think I sort of knew this stuff, but often, while we are racing through the day, I forget how important this is. I will start today, when my son gets home and we will map out how it all went down (badly) with our neighbors yesterday and then how he would have liked it to have gone.

I am excited to try b/c there is so much stress around this sort of thing in our lives!


Interesting, thank you


Wow. What an interesting concept. I'm sending a link here to my son's special ed. teacher. She's WONDERFUL and always looking for more info.

Thanks bunches!!!
