Language for Thinking

Language for Thinking


Language for Thinking is an intervention that focuses on developing verbal reasoning skills. In each session the child is presented with a cartoon picture, typically during a scenario, for example: buying an ice-cream or going down a slide at the park. The child is then asked questions about the picture and their responses are recorded. There are three different levels of questioning that the child will be exposed to during the sessions.


Children can gain the following skills:

  • Improved verbal reasoning skills
  • Improved thinking skills
  • Develop language skills
  • Improved spoken and written language
