How Our Understanding of Reality Develops.
This booklet is intended to help teachers and prospective teachers of mentally retarded students to understand the ways in which intellect affects the understanding of reality. Its recommendations are based on G. Kylen's theory of the intellect and J. Piaget's theory of intellectual development. The initial section describes the function and organization of the intellect as well as the intellect's use of structure. Chapter 2 traces four levels of intellectual development through five categories of reality (space, time, quality, number, and cause). Each of these five categories is addressed in terms of the intellect and different levels of development. (CL)
