Suggested Responses: Students should comment on how the absence of reflexes or their persistence into later infancy can indicate developmental problems. They should describe how reflexes allow infant-adult play and social contact. How some reflexes develop into purposeful behaviors (e.g., grasping) should also be discussed. An example of a reflex should be used throughout the answer to support main points.
