Object Permanence

Object Permanence

A developmental term that refers to a child’s ability to understand that objects still exist after they are no longer in sight. Infants eight months old or younger tend not to have this ability. It is not until they become more cognitively developed that they understand to search for an object even though it has been hidden from view.”
