For students with autism spectrum disorder, perspective-taking and putting themselves in someone else's shoes are difficult skills to master. This short social skills lesson introduces the idea of considering other people's feelings when we make a choice about how to react or behave. Activities in this lesson also place an emphasis on cause-and-effect relationships, explaining how our own actions can affect other people's feelings and how they think about us.
