This particular branch focuses on the mind and behavior of children from prenatal development through adolescence. This might explain why some autistic individuals show extreme deficits in both theory of mind and pretend play.

Since a verbal utterance is often underdetermined, and therefore, it can have different meanings depending on the actual context theory of mind abilities can play a crucial role in understanding the communicative and informative intentions of others and inferring the meaning of words.
