The book is divided into twelve units. Every unit has yearly goals arranged in order of difficulty. Each yearly goal is supported by a hierarchy of six to twenty-five individual objectives. Each individual objective has a corresponding intervention objective (treatment goal).
A broad range of skills applicable to ages one through eighteen is covered:
- Pragmatics—pragmatic behaviors in nonverbal children; conversation skills for preschool, school-age, and adolescent children; classroom social skills; and narrative discourse skills
- Vocabulary and Meaning—labels and categories; concepts; antonyms/synonyms; word relationships; figurative language; inferences, predictions, and outcomes; and more
- Syntax and Morphology—each section begins with a receptive task where appropriate and progresses from the imitated level to use of the target skill in phrases, sentences, conversation, and writing; includes parts of speech, questions, and sentence structure
