The world unfolds progressively in front of the child, through sensory and motor experiences. At this stage of development the child can often be vulnerable.

A child with special needs may not be as eager to try new experiences or stimuli as a regular child. He may not even play and, without stimulation, his condition does not improve through daily experiences.

When a child's development is delayed or slowed down due to deficiencies or an abnormal environment, the first years of life are not enough for a child to become aware of his body or to feel safe with or without other people - for example, to start to develop their autonomy.
