Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the theory of mind in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and control individuals by applying the Strange Stories test that was translated and adapted to the Portuguese language. Method: Twenty-eight children with ASD and 56 controls who were all mate and aged between 6 and 12 years participated in the study. Results: There were significant differences between the median scores of the groups for each of the 12 stories of the test and for the sum total of all the median scores. the median scores for all stories were significantly greater in the control group than those in the experimental group (children with ASD). in addition, the protocol had excellent internal consistency. Conclusion: the theory of mind skills assessed with the Strange Stories test indicated alterations in children with ASD compared with children in the control group.
