, CA (PressExposure) June 04, 2009 -- Symbol Imagery is the ability to create mental representations for sounds and letters within words. This sensory-cognitive function is highly correlated to:

- phonological processing for word attack skills

- orthographic processing for word recognition skills and spelling accuracy

- fluent paragraph reading

Once developed, this sensory-cognitive ability allows individuals to self-correct reading and spelling responses quickly and confidently by matching what they see in print to their visual image of a word. This function is developed through the Seeing Stars® for Symbol Imagery (SI™) Program.

Phonemic Awareness is the ability to perceive the identity, number, and sequence of sounds in words. This sensory-cognitive function, which underlies the ability to benefit from direct instruction in phonics, is strongly related to:

- identifying and manipulating sounds within words

- phonological processing for word attack skills

- phonological processing for improved phonetic spelling

Once developed, this sensory-cognitive ability allows individuals to accurately identify and manipulate sounds within words and improve decoding and spelling. This function is developed through the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LiPS®) Program.

Concept Imagery is the ability to create mental representations for the gestalt or whole of what is read or heard. This sensory-cognitive function underlies the ability to:

- comprehend oral and written language

- follow directions

- problem solve

- think critically and creatively

Once developed, this sensory-cognitive ability allows individuals to create imaged gestalts or holistic mental representations--processing the "big picture" from which to reason and communicate. Individuals can then perform higher order thinking skills such as getting the main idea, making inferences, drawing conclusions, predicting and evaluating. This function is developed through the Visualizing and Verbalizing® for Language Comprehension and Thinking (V/V®) Program.
