Resum

La Teoria de la ment (TM) és la capacitat humana de comprendre els estats mentals de les persones, que ens permet entendre i anticipar el seu comportament, i que per tant, té implicacions importants en la seva socialització. Tot i que en l’actualitat existeixen alguns instruments per avaluar aquesta capacitat, no n’hi ha cap que consideri l’evolució de les seves principals fites evolutives des de les més bàsiques fins les més avançades. En aquest sentit, es presenta l’Instrument d’Avaluació de la TM (IATM), una eina consistent en 17 tasques basades en la literatura científica prèvia, que ha estat pensada per ajudar als psicòlegs i psicopedagogs a detectar aquells aspectes de la TM amb els quals els infants de 3 a 12 anys poden tenir dificultats. Així doncs, és un instrument per a la detecció de dificultats de comprensió social que pretén contribuir al disseny d’intervencions educatives ajustades a les dificultats específiques dels infants.
