ABSTRACT

Aim: The aim was to study the impact of child friendly play-way method of intervention programme on enhancement of attention among tribal children. Sample: The research was conducted in Ashrama Schools (schools run for tribal children). The sample consisted of tribal children studying in 4th, 5th and 6th standard, aged between 9 to 12 years. Methodology: A before – after, experimental control group design with post assessment after three and half months of intervention programme was adapted for the study. The intervention programme consisted of art and craft wok; games and play; word games; number games and cultural activities. Procedure: Initially both the experimental and control groups were screened on Children’s Behaviour Questionnaire and then were assessed (pre-assessment) on Number Cancellation Test/ Speed and Accuracy Test. The intervention programme consisting of art and craft wok; games and play; word games; number games and cultural activities were conducted for a period of three and half months on experimental group. 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.
