It is difficult to test a cognitive ability across development, because tasks needed to test cognitive ability evolve as the child grows. To solve this problem, UNC has designed and developed events for testing infant and toddler declarative memory that grow with the child. This product consists of 3-D printed objects and can be as simple as assembling a box and hammering a nail into the hole, or involve more complicated sequences. These tests prompt children to perform tasks in different sequences, imitate the instructor, and show a link between completing the sequence and verbal instruction. This product can be added to existing toddler developmental programs.
