Abstract:   (198 Views)
This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of working memory training on the planning and executive functions of children with learning disabilities. The present study has a quasi-experimental pretest-posttest design with a control group. The statistical population of the present study included all LD children of Bushehr (Iran) in 2022. The participants were 30 students selected by the accessible sampling method and randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. Data were collected using the Tower of London (ToL) scale and Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function (BRIEF) by Gioia et al. Working memory training using the protocol of Shaykh al-Islami et al. (2017) was presented to children with learning disabilities in the experimental group during 17 sessions. The control group did not receive any intervention during this period. The results showed that working memory training significantly increased the planning and components of executive functions (inhibition, working memory, shifting, planning/organizing, and emotional control). These results confirmed the practical and theoretical importance of working memory training programs as methods of training planning and executive functions in LD children.
