The results showed that the training program had a positive effect on the visual attention and spelling performance of the subjects. In terms of visual attention, the percentage of heterogeneous data was PND= 0.75 for the first, second, and third participants, and in relation to the fourth participant, it was PND=0.100. In relation to spelling performance, the calculated PND for all four participants was 0.75.
