Social stage of Adolescent development
Sensory Motor Period (0 – 24 months)
|Simple reflex activity such as grasping, sucking.|
|Primary Circular Reactions(2-4 months)||Reflexive behaviors occur in stereotyped repetition such as opening and closing fingers repetitively.|
|Secondary Circular Reactions
|Repetition of change actions to reproduce interesting consequences such as kicking one’s feet to more a mobile suspended over the crib.|

|Responses become coordinated into more complex sequences. Actions take on an “intentional” character such as the infant reaches behind a screen to obtain a hidden object.|
|Tertiary Circular Reactions
|Discovery of new ways to produce the same consequence or obtain the same goal such as the infant may pull a pillow toward him in an attempt to get a toy resting on it.|
