Child Visit Psychology 100 We are fortunate to have our guest visit with us today. You will watch as the child is asked to participate in play-like activities that illustrate Piaget’s stages of cognitive development. It is not a test and does not diagnose any developmental issues. The demonstrations are based on what Piaget believed to be present in children of specific ages based on his work and observations of his own children. To help get the most of the time together here is brief introduction into what you will observe. As you observe think about what Piaget thought would happen with a child of this age. What do you think is going on in each demonstration? How might you explain your observations? Introductory Observation : The class is not a natural situation for the child.
