Piagetian Theory and the Helping Professions. Proceedings of the Second Annual UAP Conference.
Children's Hospital, Los Angeles, CA.
Describing the processes that characterize children's thinking at successive stages of development, Jean Piaget's theories provide guidelines for the study of the intellectual development of children. These conference proceedings relate Piagetian theory to the helping professions. Through the use of panel discussion, symposia, test demonstrations, films, or papers, the conference ascertained the relevance of Piagetian theory to the following topic areas: psychometry, the preschool child, elementary school curriculum, assessment, handicapped children, and concepts of conservation and velocity. The conference attempted to apply Piagetian theory to special groups of children such as those with cerebral palsy, visual handicaps, or exceptional intelligence. The conference also included presentations of research studies in Piagetian theory. (Author/LAA)
