Piaget observed his own children as they grew up. He gave us valuable information about the kinds of activities a child of a particular age could accomplish. There were things that were easy for a seven-year-old but almost impossible for a four or five year old. Therefore, we know that there is a right time and a wrong time for a child to start formal schooling. A child with learning disabilities may be better off starting school a little later than usual to give his/her brain more time to mature.
