Likewise, people ask, what is an example of sensorimotor stage?
Primary Circular Reactions (1-4 months) This substage involves coordinating sensation and new schemas. For example, a child may suck his or her thumb by accident and then later intentionally repeat the action. These actions are repeated because the infant finds them pleasurable.
Secondly, what are the 6 stages of sensorimotor development? The sensorimotor stage is composed of six sub-stages and lasts from birth through 24 months. The six sub-stages are reflexes, primary circular reactions, secondary circular reactions, coordination of reactions, tertiary circular reactions, and early representational thought.
