Need help with Comprehension & Imagery??

We provide visual imagery therapy to improve oral and reading comprehension leading to improvement in language and learning.


We deliver the Lindamood-Bell Visualizing and Verbalizing therapy program to children/students identified with Comprehension and Imagery difficulties to improve reading and auditory comprehension.


Many readers can read words and have a developed vocabulary, but still struggle to comprehend sentences or paragraphs.  Visualizing and Verbalizing teaches students who struggle with reading comprehension and language processing to build pictures in their minds as they listen to or read text, with the ultimate goal of being able to visualize the main idea or get the whole picture. This is called concept imagery. As Albert Einstein said, “If I can’t picture it, I can’t understand it.”

Here are some signs that your child or student has difficulty processing language and would likely benefit from learning about concept imagery:


  • No response to verbal explanations
  • Trouble understanding jokes
  • Repeatedly asks questions that have already been answered
  • Misses the main ideas from TV shows or has trouble guessing what might happen, only retaining a few details
  • Difficulty understanding cause and effect
  • Trouble paying attention during lectures or conversations
  • Trouble remembering or following verbal directions
  • Trouble making sense when talking
  • Does not express self often, seems quiet much of the time
  • Can read words fluently but has trouble comprehending what he/she reads
