Is Your Child Struggling With Comprehension?

Understanding or cognition are other names for intelligence, often called thinking skills or abilities.

Understanding includes our ability to use abstract thinking, to apply logic and reasoning and to learn new things. The science of educational psychology studies our ability to learn and understand.

Within this section, articles include topics like verbal reasoning, non-verbal problem solving, fluid reasoning, spatial awareness, auditory processing, sequential reasoning, and processing speed. These topics are all aspects of the way we understand and learn.

Children who are struggling with cognition will have some trouble in school and in other intellectually demanding endeavors. The good news is that for most people, a high degree of patience, and focused effort, will often lead to an improved outcome. Visit this page for general information about understanding challenges.
