primary cause of language comprehension problems is difficulty creating
an imaged gestalt-a whole. This is called weak concept imagery. This
weakness causes individuals to only get "parts" such as a few facts or
details rather than the whole picture.
Individuals with weak
concept imagery have difficulty with reading comprehension, critical
thinking, and may not easily follow directions or connect to
conversations. They may also have difficulty expressing ideas in an
organized manner. If they read well, but are severely unable to
comprehend they may be labeled hyperlexic or high-functioning autistic,
Individuals of all ages may experience the symptoms of an undiagnosed and untreated concept imagery dysfunction.
