Introduction: Due to the fact that mathematics for slow-moving students should be in line with the realities of society, applied computing skills can include concepts that the student deals with objectively and directly in society and his needs as a citizen considers. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a family-centered application curriculum on the computational skills of children with Down syndrome.
Methods: The present study was quasi-experimental (pre-test-post-test with control group). Thirty slow-moving elementary school students with Down syndrome studying in exceptional schools in Tehran were selected by convenience sampling method and randomly divided into experimental and control groups. The experimental group participated in 11 sessions of 45 minutes of Mohaghegh family-based application training package (1396) to improve computational skills. Both groups were evaluated in the pre-test-post-test stages using the Ki-Matt (1976) computational scale. Univariate analysis of covariance was used to analyze the data.
Results: The results show that the family-centered application curriculum has led to an increase in the mean scores of computational skills of the participants in the experimental group compared to the control group (P <0.001).
Conclusion: The results of the present study showed that the family-centered applied curriculum is an effective way to improve the computational skills of slow-moving students with Down syndrome.
