Abstract:

Learning disability is associated with varied learning problems. Among these problems is the difficulty in identifying colors. However, for children with no formal diagnosis, the term "learning difficulty" is often used instead. This study aimed to test whether bead stringing is an effective strategy in teaching color in identification to an 11 year old. This study is an action research using ABA design. The subject is an 11 year old child who is a resident of Brgy. West Timawa Molo, Iloilo City and a student of social laboratory school. The researchers choose the subject because they wanted to continue the intervention they have started on their individualized educational plan course. The subject was also chosen because of his difficulty in identifying colors. Beads stringing was chosen as intervention because it is an activity the subject is interested with. The researchers and the subject met within 15 days at the subject residence. A 3 day pre test and 3 day post test were held, there were 9 days of intervention. The data in this study were gathered using checklists, intillegence quotient (IQ) testing, observation sheets and personal interview. Before the intervention, the subjects identified colors were 11 and 97 colors out of 108 colors to be identified which shows a poor performance in color identification. After the intervention, the subjects identified colors increased to 39, and this unidentified colores decreased to 67 colors which showed a progress to his color-identification skill that showed the difference in the color identification. The challenges/problems faced by the researchers during the study were: subject attention span to the task given, and difficulty in following instructions. Recommnedations made are as follows: the task given to the child with learning difficulty may need to be shortened and made more interesting in order to sustain his concentration: instructions may need to be simpler for the child to follow them easily: and further research on teaching colors maybe done using a different strategy.
