Sample text

Schemata: Behaviors that identify objects and their purposes. • Assimilation: Identification of objects based on their physical attributes. • Accommodation: Classification of objects based on multiple attributes. • Equilibrium: The balance between assimilation and accommodation. Can you describe the following Stages of Cognitive Development? • Sensorimotor Stage: From birth–2, kids start to figure out the objects that make up their world. • Preoperational Stage: From 2–6, children are egocentric and only understand concepts and objects as they relate to them.

My 5-year-old is convinced that every black car she sees in the parking lot belongs to my husband. She’s just starting to look for the Hyundai symbol on the back as she moves toward equilibrium. N OTE A D U LTS A N D EQU I L I BR I U M Adults struggle with equilibrium, too! Have you ever been somewhere unfamiliar and, based on a particular building or landmark, think you’ve been there before? That’s your brain trying to decide whether it should assimilate the visual information into an existing category or accommodate it into a new one.

This phenomenon happens between 18 and 24 months of age and propels kids into the next stage, the preoperational stage. The Preoperational Stage: Ages 2–6 “Preoperational” is a term that Piaget developed to refer to children who don’t yet understand “concrete logic” and can only see things from their own point of view. Kids enter the preoperational stage at around age two. This is a very exciting developmental stage, especially for parents, because this is when kids start using language as a communication tool.
