Three-Year-Olds' Difficulty with the Appearance-Reality Distinction: Is It Real or Is It Apparent?
Sapp, Felicity; Lee, Kang; Muir, Darwin
Developmental Psychology, v36 n5 p547-60 Sep 2000
Investigated 3-year-olds' understanding of the appearance-reality distinction using verbal response and nonverbal response paradigms in 4 experiments. Found that about 30 percent of children were correct in verbal paradigm; over 90 percent of same children were correct in nonverbal paradigm. Participating in the verbal paradigm impeded children's later performance in the nonverbal paradigm; the reverse order had no effect. (Author/KB)
