Abstract


The present study aimed to investigate the impact of applying a computerized strategy based on training upon developing the skill of Math word problem solving among students with learning disabilities (attention-deficit) in Mathematics. The study sample consisted of (14) students with learning disabilities in Mathematics, randomly chosen from elementary public schools in the city of Najran, Saudi Arabia, and distributed evenly into two groups: The control group (7) students who studied in the traditional way and the experimental group (7) students who studied in computer-based training strategy. Pre-and-post achievement test conducted in Mathematics. The results showed that there are statistically significant differences at the post-achievement test in mathematics in the skill of Math word problem solving in favor of members of the experimental group, which indicates the effectiveness of the computer-based training strategy upon developing the skill of Math word problem solving. Accordingly, the study made several recommendations; the most notably is urging official bodies and educational institutions to provide educational computerized software and to be circulated to elementary public education schools.
