Visualizing and Verbalizing (V/V®) Multi-Sensory Language-Based Programming
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. 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
- Oral language expression
- Written language expression
- Grasping humor
- Interpreting social situations
- Understanding cause and effect
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.
Oral reading is critical in improving reading fluency, comprehension, and prosody. Reading Assistant Plus is an innovative online guided reading tool that provides intensive reading practice. Learners use the tool to read developmentally appropriate texts both silently and aloud. What makes Reading Assistant Plus such an innovative reading practice tool is its use of patented technology that listens as each word is read aloud and delivers immediate support whenever a learner struggles with or mispronounces a word — reinforcing newly learned reading skills, vocabulary, and fluency.
Continuously assesses students to present them with targeted lessons. This Intelligent Adaptive Learning™ technology tracks each student interaction and evaluates the strategies used to solve problems. It allows students to visualize and successfully understand math concepts.
