Abstract

The article presents a psychodiagnostic study of the ability to use of ideas about the knowledge of another person and how to change it by the preschool children with mental retardation.

Out of them, 42 children attend compensatory groups. All children in the sample are diagnosed with mental retardation. The number of 30 preschoolers, corresponding to the age norm of development, made a sample of contrast. For the analysis of the development of basic ideas about the mental world of other people in the preschoolers, the classical techniques that evaluate and recognize false beliefs and the situation of deception were used. The created experimental situations confirmed that due to the lack of a model of mental and cognitive development, weak manifestations of social interaction are characteristic of a group of children with mental retardation. The study was conducted in the Altai region, a bordering regions, which experiences large migration of people from the bordering states for a qualified physiological and medical assistance
