Planning to plan: Real-time processes in the development of adaptive problem solving

Ori Ossmy & Karen Adolph
Problem solving is integral to goal-directed action—how to navigate an obstacle, open a latch, or grasp the handle of a tool. Traditionally, researchers focus on when in development children succeed at solving particular problems, but this outcome-oriented approach does not inform on underlying mechanisms. The current study focuses on how children solve problems by examining the real-time interplay among planning components. We encouraged 3- to 5-year olds (N = 32) and adults (N = 22)...
