    research accounting for how children cognitively develop comprised of maturational stages (SimplyPsychology, 2009.) However since Piaget (1896-1980) produced his theory, research has been conducted with results being produced that oppose Piaget’s original findings. The first stage a child will go through is sensorimotor and the most important process of the stage is acquiring object permanence.

Object Permanence, imitate facial expressions, take another’s perspective, pass a conservation task etc. Cognitive development describes the growth of cognitive abilities and capacities from birth to old age (Colman, 2009).

  • B. F. Skinner's Concept Of Operant Conditioning

    In this stage children begin to repeat their world with words, images, and drawings. Children in this stage are more skilled and able to think faster than a child in the sensorimotor stage. Children also go through an egocentrism state of mind during this stage which means that the child cannot put themselves in someone else’s shoes but can only see things from their point of view, which makes it hard for them to understand what Piaget calls reversibility and conservation, a belief in permanence…

  • Perceptual Development In Children

    During this sensorimotor period, motor behaviors lead to first schemas and body-centered to object centered. These schemas are dynamic, active structures from which children perceive information through experience and keep the children conscious about the external environments and they are active on discovering relationships between their bodies and environment.
