This new manual is created for persons who wish to enhance their cognitive communicative skills. It provides many problem solving cognitive-language based activities. This manual develops moderate language levels that allow individuals to expand basic cognitive communication skills to more complex levels. It provides three basic segments.

The second segment has exercises in word comprehension. It is based on simple reading activities and categorization exercises that stimulate memory for functional reading tasks.

The final section provides additional exercises for reading at the sentence level and beyond. Many individuals enjoy looking at magazines or the web to gather information. Exercises such as these allow for testing comprehension and expanding language skills to help people function more independently in their homes and communities.
