Symbolic Thought The use of substitute objects: Example 1: Doran (4-0) takes one of the pads, sticks a cylindrical wooden stick on it and holds it up and glides it in the air saying, “zoom, zoom, zoom”. Doran puts down the pad and sticks four more objects onto the pad and then pulls the objects out. Doran puts the objects back in and holds it up to another boy and says, “Lasers. Freeze”. He glides it through the air and says, “Lasers. Boom”. Then he removes an object from his pad and makes it crash into the table and says, “Lasers. Watch out”. (Obs. Notes pg. 17).
