Verbal Reasoning is an iPad app created by a certified speech and language pathologist for adults and children ages 12 and up. Verbal Reasoning targets reasoning and critical thinking skills, challenging users with over 1000 stimuli. This colorful and engaging app allows speech and language pathologists and educators to set a reward system when working with children to make therapy more fun and motivating.

Ratings and Reviews
My students are enjoying another of your apps. I like the ability to select different skills for multiple students as my groups are often mixed and at different levels. Thank you.
Cannot pick up from where we left off
I like the lessons and various categories in this app and my students seem to enjoy using it. Very clear audio and great pictures. Only downside I have found so far is that the questioning does not pick up from where you last left off from a previous session. It starts all over again with question #1. This is a big problem when you only have a :30 minute session and can not complete the 50 or 75 items within the lesson. Is frustrating not being able to take advantage of all questions, so each session I find myself selecting a new category when I might actually prefer continuing work on an earlier lesson.
Itinerant Teacher of the Deaf
I like using this with students who have issues with cause/ effect, problem/solution and reasoning issues. The reward puzzle is a nice added touch.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
