The term Temporal Directions refers to the concepts of before and after. For example: “Before you touch the balloon, touch the cushion” and “Touch the balloon before you touch the flower.”

Temporal Directions can be difficult for children to understand as depending on which clause the word “before” appears in, the order of the direction reverses!  A difficulty understanding temporal directions can result in a poor score in the Concepts & Following Directions subtest of the CELF-4 assessment as it targets these concepts.

The Keyword Understanding app specifically targets following directions including the temporal directions of before and after. The colourful pictures can keep the child engaged and the audio feedback helps to them to realise when they have got it right and when they have made an error. It’s perfect for working on what the CELF-4 is really testing.
