Verbal and visual reasoning are interrelated. These exercises "tease" out the integral parts and stimulate reasoning skills.

Written in the best-selling format of the Workbook of Activities for Language and Cognition series, these activities have:

  • easy-to-read format
  • simple, concise language
  • consistent progression of complexity within and between tasks
  • application to a wide range of acquired cognitive-language disorders
  • processes of reasoning

The tasks are divided into verbal reasoning and visual reasoning.

Verbal Reasoning

  • Emotions and Personal Situations: reason and talk about emotions, self-concept, opinions, family interactions, friendship, and conversation skills
  • Idioms and Proverbs: recognize when something is literal or abstract and look for different meanings in what is heard
  • Categorization: name objects by category, provide categories and subcategories, add members to categories, and recognize categorization in the context of sentences
  • Convergent Reasoning: differentiate facts and opinions; solve word puzzles, deduction puzzles, and acrostics; and answer logic questions
  • Analogies: fill in missing parts to complete analogies
  • Paragraph Comprehension: make accurate inferences about stories

Visual Reasoning

  • Visual Analogies: complete picture and figural analogies of increasing complexity
  • Visual Figure-Ground: locate figures and shapes within the whole and parts within a whole
  • Visual Sequencing: identify visual changes and sequence items by those changes
