Summary

Many preschool children with developmental delays in cognition and language are in the preoperational stage as defined by Jean Piaget's theory of cognitive development. The preoperational stage is divided into the preconceptual and the intuitive phases. During the preconceptual phase, the preschooler is unable to form true concepts and often reasons in the form of unrelated judgement without logical organization. In the intuitive phase, the child's reasoning is tied to his perceptions and therefore his thinking is often distorted. Implications for parents and teachers are that in a special preschool class, activities should be of a wide variety and should include exploring with all the senses (such as imitating the actions of people, animals and objects); that at home, parents can emphasize real experiences (including planting seeds and cooking); and parents and teachers should use language related to what the child is experiencing as well as to his general level of language functioning.
