Predicting what will happen is a difficult skill for some of our more concrete learners. Understanding of cause and effect even with fairly concrete examples can be a challenge for your students with language disorders. Answering What if questions can be particularly difficult; much more so than the standard Wh-questions.
Understanding that 'X' inevitably - or usually - or often - leads to 'Y' is a crucial life skill.
And it is significantly more difficult for them to understand the more- abstract concepts of how what they say and do can lead to consequences; such as saying something mean to someone will hurt their feelings. And just what is “mean” anyway?
