In place of Tomasello's explanation for the source of moral obligation, we suggest that it develops from the concern for others already implicit in the human developmental system. Mutual affection and caring make the development of communication and thinking possible. Humans develop as persons within such relationships and this develops into respect and moral obligation.

Children often answer questions when they do not have the knowledge to or when they do not understand them. We examined whether “ground rules” instruction - to say “I don’t know”, to tell the truth, and to correct the interviewer when necessary - assisted children in applying those rules during an interview about a past event and whether doing so was associated with more accurate accounts. We compared children with intellectual disabilities (mild or moderate severity, n = 44, 7–12 years) with th...

Abstract Background There is conflicting evidence regarding whether children with Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and intellectual disabilities (ID) follow social pragmatic cues such as a speaker’s eye gaze or pointing towards a novel object to assist mapping a new word onto a new object (e.g. fast mapping). Aims We test fast mapping from a speaker’s gaze and pointing towards objects in children with ASC and ID with varying chronological and receptive language ages compared with receptive langua...

Background: Child psychopathology involves inappropriate or biased attributions of others’ mental states (mentalizing), and parents’ assessment of their children’s mentalizing significantly predicts the latter’s psychosocial outcomes. Behavioural difficulties are frequent in children with epilepsy, yet biased mentalizing and parental accuracy in understanding their child’s mental states reasoning have not been addressed. Methods: This study compared the performance of 34 children with epilepsy a...

Background: The home environment is reported to contribute significantly to children’s developing cognitive skills. However, it is not yet evident whether this role prevails in the context of extreme poverty and frequent ill-health. We therefore investigated the role of the home environment in Ugandan children taking into account the frequent infections and extreme poverty in which they lived. Methods: Cognitive abilities of 163 5-year-old children were assessed. Home environments of these child...

Two studies are presented to examine whether and why 3–5-year-olds in Pakistan display limited social understanding. Study 1 tested 71 preschoolers on Lillard and Flavell’s (1992) test of desires, pretence and beliefs, plus two false belief tasks, and showed very limited understanding across these measures even though almost half were over 5 years old. Study 2 replicated this effect with 35 preschoolers, and also conducted home observations of mother–child interaction at two time points. It test...

Children must describe maltreatment coherently for their testimony to be influential in court. We know little about how well children with intellectual disabilities (CWID) describe their experiences relative to typically developing (TD) children, despite CWID's vulnerability to maltreatment. We investigated children's reports of an experienced event and compared coherence in CWID (mild to moderate impairment: 7–11 years) with TD children matched for mental (4–10 years) or chronological age (7–11...
