Visualizing Verbalizing®

Visualizing and Verbalizing® Program for Cognitive Development, Comprehension, & Thinking

PROBLEM

Your child reads words accurately, but she doesn’t understand what she reads. Words seem to “go in one ear and out the other” and she struggles with following directions. Her parents express frustration about her weak short term and long term memory. Her teachers think she is not trying, and she has been labelled as having ADHD.

CAUSE

Weak Concept Imagery

A primary cause of language comprehension problems is difficulty creating an imagined gestalt. This is called weak concept imagery. This weakness causes individuals to get only “parts” of information they read or hear, but not the whole.

SYMPTOMS

Individuals of all ages may experience the symptoms of a weakness in concept imagery.

This causes weakness in:

  • Reading comprehension
  • Listening comprehension
  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Following directions
  • Memory
  • Oral language expression
  • Written language expression
  • Grasping humor
  • Interpreting social situations
  • Understanding cause and effect

SOLUTION

The Visualizing and Verbalizing® (V/V®) program develops concept imagery—the ability to create an imagined or imaged gestalt from language—as a basis for comprehension and higher order thinking. The development of concept imagery improves reading and listening comprehension, memory, oral vocabulary, critical thinking, and writing.
