Non Verbal reasoning.
Non-verbal reasoning requires exemplary spatial awareness which can come naturally to some, and for those who don’t we teach how to be systematic and through logical thinking, teach the process of elimination one-by-one and when to apply deduction skills and mathematical theories such as symmetry and rotation. There are also numerous activities that can provide to develop a child’s spatial awareness, visual ability and non-verbal reasoning skills such as puzzles and interconnecting kits that will prove useful.
