Abstract:   (6481 Views)
Learning disability (LD) is common problem in present world. Teachers and parents seek the newest instructional methods always. In this research, LD students in particular dyscalculia students are considered at elementary level. Assistive technology (AT) as assistive tools are designed and constructed to help LD students. One of tools of AT is software. The aim of this study is to introduce and design new mathematical software. Via quasi-experimental method, two basic addition and subtraction operations are taught through mathematical software with its special features for LD students at elementary level. Then findings are analyzed thereby ANOVA and sheffe tests. The results indicated that this technology has effect on the performance of these students and also, it is studied that the effect of using AT (Math Explorer software) on increasing ability of mathematical problem solving for dyscalculia students do not follow gender that is there is not significant difference between favorite performance of girl and boy LD students. Keywords: Learning Disabled Students, Dyscalculia Students, Assistive Technology, Math Explorer, Ability.
