What mental changes occur during preschool?

Self control: There are many, but here are two big changes: 1) preschoolers are gaining further confidence around long separations from parents, which usually requires that the child develop social skills, and the ability to integrate with friends and teachers; 2) learning to use competitive and aggressive feelings in a socially acceptable manner.

Not uncommon: Sometimes we have to observe a child in different ways. Our neuropsychologist sees patients first & gets the best out of them on standardized tests. Then they see me (db pede) when they're tired, but they've had a snack. With parental permission, i push the buttons that bring out autistic behaviors, if there.
