The purpose of this presentation is to present findings from a study of precrawling infants as they learned to drive a robotic mobility device, and to relate these findings to dynamic systems theory. Thelen (2005) argues that developmental change occurs with the organization of many individual elements within the infant and the environment. In this study, the infant’s intentional movement increased as nonintentional movement decreased over mobility sessions, demonstrating self-organization.
