Study Design: In the present study, we included a subsample of a German longitudinal study. This subsample was tested in ToM at Wave 5 of the more comprehensive study. We also encompassed measures of children’s language competencies, nonverbal cognitive abilities and working memory at Wave 1 as baseline measures. Wave 1 took place 2 years earlier than Wave 5 in the year 2005. We further encompassed measures of Wave 11 and 12 that took place 7 and 8 years after Wave 5. At Wave 11 we included a measure of children’s advanced ToM and at Wave 12 for children’s oral text comprehension and reading comprehension
