This program targets Level 3 questions and statements. At this level of understanding, your child will need to look beyond the material in front of him/her. He/she will be required to evaluate and reorder the information. A typical skill in this category is the ability to exclude material. Your child will need to follow directions which may use the words ‘not, don’t, can’t, something else, other than’. The activities in this program have been designed specifically to help your child recognise alternatives.

A number of Level 4 questions have been included in this program.  These tasks will prove useful for those children who are working towards a more abstract type of question. Questions at this level include Why should …? Why shouldn’t …?
Why can …? Why can’t …? What could …? How can we tell …?
