ABSTRACT

Cognition is the thinking capacity of children.  Every child has distinct cognitive abilities. The present research study was conducted on a sample of 480 students including males and females who were 7 years in age.  Sample was selected from Punjab and Chandigarh.  Research was conducted in order to analyse the impact of intervention program based on Gardner’s multiple intelligences on the focus factor, decision making ability, creative quotient and academic achievement of respondents in order to compare the variations in the dependent variables of subjects.  Respondents were categorized into experimental and control groups.  Each student was given worksheets according to his own natural learning style which was assessed during the programme.  It was found that there was significant rise in these cognitive abilities and academic achievement of respondents in experimental.  In contrast, insignificant changes were witnessed among their control group counterparts.
