Effect of Academic Cognitive Remedial Interventions on the Skills of Children with Special Need
The present study was a single-group pre and post-test design study. It was conducted to see the impact of academic remedial interventions on the developmental skills (adaptive, personal-social, communication, motor, and cognitive) of children with special need (CWSN). Ten children with special need were identified through subjective ratings based on teacher’s appraisal and attained achievement scores in respective grades and scores attained on Raven’s Standard Progressive Matrices (SPM; Raven, Court, & Raven, 1977) during screening. Boys (n = 6) and girls (n = 4) of ages ranging from seven years to fourteen years of age were purposefully selected from Bhopal Manovikas Inclusive & Rehabilitation Center, Bhopal. Skills of CWSN were measured by Malin’s Intelligence Scale for Indian Children (MISIC).Quantitative analyses revealed that academic interventions were highly effective in enhancing the developmental skills of CWSN’ students as well cognitive intervention.
