This manual provides the theory and specific steps to develop concept imagery, the ability to image a gestalt (whole) from language. It describes the important questioning techniques that stimulate mental imagery, so the teacher can learn to help students visualize language and verbalize what they have imaged. This imagery-language connection is essential for oral and written language comprehension, as well as critical thinking. The V/V® Manual includes sample lessons, step summaries, illustrations, and useful tips for implementing V/V® instruction. This second edition is updated and revised, offering more than 100 pages of new material.

This book has very specific lessons and information so that a parent like me (I have no special needs or early learning education) can teach a child to improve comprehension and communication. So often special needs texts lack concrete instructions about how to work with kids -- this book is a fantastic investment for a parent concerned about reading comprehension and non-verbal learning.
I love using this with my students. It has really helped with comprehension.
This came highly recommended. I need triplamente it in the summer because of the time commitment required for implementation.
Fair price
Great, my daughter's tutor is working through it with her.
Good for reference
Good, thanks!
Some people of all ages have difficulty understanding what they read. There are many reasons why this happens. One of those reasons has to do with an inability to visualize what is being read. Visualizing and Verbalizing presents in clear, explicit steps how to teach a student to visualize and thus better understand what they are reading. It won't fix every comprehension problem, but it is a wonderful tool that can empower some who are struggling to comprehend text.
