    Infants from 0 - 2 years old pass through 6 sub-stages of the sensorimotor stage of cognitive development: reflex acts, primary circular reactions (intentional actions), secundary circular reactions, co-ordinating secondary schemes (using their abilities to reach a goal), tertiary circular reactions and symbolic thought (understanding object permanence, for example.)
