Interdisciplinary aspects of periodization of mental development in children

The methodological basis of the study of dysontogenesis is coming from well known theoretical positions about the unity of the regularities of normal and abnormal development. Hence the selection of the most diagnostically significant signs of mental dysontogenesis is possible only after the study of the general characteristics of normal and abnormal development. Conceptual positions of the general and mental ontogenesis has evolved over time with the accumulation of scientific and empirical data. The general regularities of quantitative and qualitative changes in the development process led to a common opinion about the irregularity, discontinuity of development, the dynamics of which are most intense at early ages, the existence of particular cycles, stages of child development, at different levels of biological and psychological potential. A statement of this fact became the basis for the creation of the theory of periodization of individual development, as the transition from one stage of development to another, qualitatively higher.
