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 WALC series, these activities have:

• simple, concise language
• easy-to-read formats
• application to a wide range of acquired cognitive-language disorders
• consistent progression of complexity within and between tasks
• 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
• Visual Closure and Reasoning: identify missing and salient features, choose figures to complete an image, make visual inferences, and identify incongruities in pictures
• Drawing: higher level tasks for vocational purposes include drawing figures to scale and sketching floor plans
