1  Newborn Infant: 0-4 weeks

This article describes the perceptual-motor abilities (in supine, prone, sitting, upper and lower limb movement , visual attention) of the infant in the first few weeks, with an emphasis on the importance of  the infant's first experience of using available resources to interact with the social and physical environment and start to form the perception-action loops that are the foundation for goal directed, intentional movements.
