Structure of Intellect (SOI) works on developing 90 different Cognitive abilities among school going children. Below are just a few abilities demonstrated that will give you an idea of how we help the child improve in different Cognitive abilities.
In each ability the worksheets are in increasing order of difficulty.
Also note, SOI content comes customized for each child. We have both easier and more difficult content available in each ability to meet each child’s developmental needs.
Why is CFU Important?
Academic skill: Visual Closure
Curricular area: Reading Readiness
Consequences if ability is not developed: Will not see word completely; susceptible toword reversals
Strengths if ability is well developed: Excellent comprehension of visual details
Summary: All tasks that involve figural comprehension will be affected by visual closure. These tasks range from letter, symbol, and word recognition to reading charts, graphs, and schematics. This is a fundamental intellectual ability.

CONVERGENT PRODUCTION OF SYMBOLIC RELATIONS (NSR-ll)
Why is NSR important?
Academic skill: Focusing Skills
Curricular area: Reading
Consequences if ability is not developed: Unable to follow text across the page.
Strengths if ability is well developed: Good reading “mechanics”.
Summary: Underlying ability for the “mechanics” of reading comprehension, especially eye movement involved in transition from one line to the next and in scanning material. Underlying ability for symbolic manipulation tasks such as arithmetic, mathematics, and programming.

EVALUATION OF SYMBOLIC SYSTEMS (ESS-ll)
Why is ESS important?
Academic skill: Notational Processes.
Curricular area: Arithmetic/Mathematics.
Consequences if ability is not developed: Susceptible to “math anxiety” due to inability to handle ambiguity.
Strengths if ability is well developed: Good at selecting numerical processes.
Summary:Underlying ability for arithmetic and math. The ability to handle ambiguity is essential for competency in arithmetic and mathematics. ESS trains this ability directly without requiring an extensive set of arithmetic skills.
Underlying ability for computer literacy. Much of computer literacy is concerned with solving problems by eliminating apparently appropriate but incorrect elements necessary for the solution.ESS develops the ability to solve problems in this manner.
