The sensorimotor stage is the first of the four stages in Piaget developmental theory. Piaget’s theory of cognitive development is a theory about the nature and development of human intelligence specially for newborn babies. It was created by the Swiss developmental psychologist Jean Piaget (1896–1980). The Piaget’s theory is mainly known as a developmental stage theory. During this cognitive development stage up to 2 years children behaviors lack a sense of thought and logic. Behaviors gradually move from acting upon inherited reflexes to interacting with the environment with a goal in mind and being able to represent the external world at the end.The sensorimotor stage is the first of the four stages in Piaget developmental theory.
