In a third conference on theory of mind in Toronto, held in April 2002, the focus was on the developmental interdependence of theory of mind and language, particularly as observed in the strong relations between children's linguistic abilities and their understanding of mind. The 15 papers consider such aspects as communities, relationships, and individual differences in children's understanding of mind; the developmental origins of meaning for mental terms; linguist communication and social understanding; deaf children; and children with autism.
