Blanks levels look at the development of verbal reasoning in children eg categorising, sequencing, predicting, problem-solving and inferring. They are divided into 4 levels which follow a developmental sequence. The focus is on understanding sentences and being able to answer questions appropriately rather than on using correct sentences and grammar.

It is important to work on the level that is right for your child. If you are unsure which level to choose, please speak to your child's teacher.
