How can I help my child with verbal reasoning?

One of the key elements to success with verbal reasoning is a broad vocabulary. Consider offering alternatives to the words you would usually use, or ask your child for a synonym to something you are discussing. Note how words are can be similar yet different, such as "though" and "thought", or how two different words can be constructed from the same components. Also encourage mental arithmetic.
