Course 2: Intellectual and Cognitive Development in Young Children by Mohan Dallumal

Intellectual and cognitive development in young children, typically from birth to around age 6, encompasses the gradual emergence of fundamental mental processes. During this critical period, children acquire and refine essential cognitive skills, including language comprehension and expression, memory, attention, and problem-solving abilities. This developmental journey involves not only the formation of a cognitive toolkit but also the integration these skills into everyday experiences. Young children engage in imaginative play, laying the foundation for creativity and abstract thinking. Cognitive development is closely intertwined with socio-emotional growth as children learn to regulate emotions and navigate social interactions. This early phase is pivotal in shaping a child's capacity for learning, setting the stage for future academic, social, and emotional competence.
