Can 2- and 3-Year-Old Children Be Trained to Perform Visual Perception Tasks?
British Journal of Developmental Psychology, v25 n3 p327-334 Sep 2007
Children aged 2 and 3 years were exposed to a novel paradigm designed to train visual perception skills. The results indicate that children of this age could be trained to perform both percept deprivation and percept diagnosis tasks. Results are discussed with reference to engagement, a precursor to an adult-like understanding of perception.
