SEE HOW WORDS AND NUMBERS INTERCONNECT SEQUENTIALLY INTO FLUENT SENTENCES AND PROCEDURES
This cognitive feature enables an individual to interconnect words and numbers sequentially.
A deficit will make it difficult to process cognitive information because individuals are unable to re-code the information correctly into memory. So, they cannot recall information and put it into their own words.
Without an ability to ‘play out situations in their head’ a person may not be able to correctly interpret cause and effect. They will often do something without asking and as they are incapable of thinking out the possible consequences of the action beforehand the outcome may not be appropriate.
Individuals will often speak or write in short standard sentences as they have difficulty interpreting longer ones. They may also use incorrect words or use correct words in the wrong place in a sentence. Maths procedures are also learnt rather than understood.
