This stage lasts from birth to two years old. During this stage, behaviors lack a sense of thought and logic. Behaviors gradually move from acting upon inherited reflexes to interacting with the environment with a goal in mind and being able to represent the external world at the end.
The sensorimotor stage has been broken down into six sub stages that explain the gradual development of infants from birth to age 2. Once the child gains the ability to mentally represent reality, the child begins the transition to the preoperational stage of development.
Examples of these reflexes include grasping and sucking.
If the sensation is pleasurable to the child, then the child will attempt to recreate the behavior. Schemes are groups of similar actions or thoughts that are used repeatedly in response to the environment.
For example, an infant may assimilate a new teddy bear into their putting things in their mouth scheme and use their reflexes to make the teddy bear go into their mouth. For example, a child accidentally hits the mobile above the crib and likes to watch it spin.
When it stops the child begins to grab at the object to make it spin again. Once there is another distraction say the parent walks in the room the baby will no longer focus on the mobile.
They begin to understand that one action can cause a reaction.
The baby wants a rattle but the blanket is in the way. The baby moves the blanket to get the rattle. Now that the infant can understand that the object still exists, they can differentiate between the object, and the experience of the object. According to psychologist David Elkind, "An internal representation of the absent object is the earliest manifestation of the symbolic function which develops gradually during the second year of life whose activities dominate the next stage of mental growth.
For example a baby drums on a pot with a wooden spoon, then drums on the floor, then on the table. The end product is established after the infant has pursued for the appropriate means. The means are formed from the schemes that are known by the child.
Preoperational stage[ edit ] Lasts from 2 years of age until 6 or 7.
It can be characterized in two somewhat different ways. Egocentrism is when a child can only see a certain situation his or her own way.

One can not comprehend that other people have other views and perceptions of scenarios. Animism is when an individual gives a lifeless object human-like qualities.
An individual usually believes that this object has human emotions, thoughts and intentions. Once he had proposed his structuralist theory, Piaget characterized the preoperational child as lacking the cognitive structures possessed by the concrete operational child. The absence of these structures explains, in part, the behaviors Piaget had previously described as egocentric and animistic, for example, an inability to comprehend that another individual may have different emotional responses to similar experiences.
Concrete operational stage[ edit ] Lasts from 6 or 7 years until about 12 or Piaget argues that the same general principles can be discerned in a wide range of behaviors.
