Develop language flexibility and reasoning for everyday situations. Clients learn abstract language as it applies to functional skills like question-answering, question-asking, and descriptive language.

Clients learn to:
• read between the lines
• draw logical conclusions from inadequate information
• discriminate among multiple meanings of words
• choose between literal and non-literal meanings
• extrapolate useful from irrelevant information

The activities develop higher-level language in four areas:

Answering and Asking Questions
• what would happen if
• what could
• when do/does
• how do/does
• why don't/doesn't
• if questions and true/false statements

Describing Objects and Defining Words
• object attributes, functions and actions
• exclusion and negation
• similarities, differences, and classifying
• analogies
• descriptive words
• using context to determine word meanings

Reading and Listening
• predicting content
• identify the main idea
• paraphrase passages
• draw inferences from stories
• describe and interpret pictures

Applying Language Skills
• interpret subtle meanings
• discriminate between literal and rhetorical questions
• interpret idioms and proverbs
• explain similes, metaphors, and oxymorons
