Again the experimental and control groups were assessed on Number Cancellation Test/ Speed and Accuracy Test. Analysis of results: Independent and Paired‘t’ analysis along with effect size analysis was adopted to find the difference between pre and post intervention programme and the impact of child friendly play-way method of intervention programme on enhancement of attention among tribal children. Results and conclusions: The experimental group has improved more than control group on attention after intervention programme, indicating effectiveness of the intervention programme on enhancing of attention.
