Continuous and Discontinuous Development

Image for post

Continuous development is that which occurs gradually over time. An example from the domain of physical development is height. Discontinuous development, however, is categorical and refers to changes in stages. An example here would be Piaget?s stages of cognitive development, i.e. sensory-motor, pre-operational, etc. Development as a whole is a combination and interaction of these two types.
