Abstract/Notes: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of Montessori method education on the visual-motor abilities of students with nonverbal learning disorders. For the purpose of this study, 4 first grade male students with nonverbal learning disabilities who were studying at Nabi Akram primary school in Bonab, during the academic year of 2019-2020, were selected based on the bender visual - motor gestalt test. In this research, which is a single-subject design with multi-baselines (ABA), each participant was first carefully observed according to the criteria of nonverbal learning disability and their visual-motor cognitive abilities accurately measured and recorded. Then, during the intervention phase, each participant received the Montessori method education during the 10 sessions for 45 minutes separately. The performance of the participants is also observed in the follow-up sessions. Finally, the data was analyzed by analyzing the visual diagrams, percentage of all non-overlapping data (PAND), calculating the effect size index and recovery percentage. The results of the research showed that the Montessori method education increased the visual-motor abilities of all four participants. As a result, Montessori education can be used as part of empowerment programs for students with nonverbal learning disabilities.

Abstract/Notes: Dit onderzoek vond plaats in het buitengewoon lager onderwijs van het Nisansala Special Training Centre in Tudella, Sri Lanka. Het onderzoeksonderwerp ‘fijne motoriek’ werd mee bepaald door de inbreng van de leerkrachten tijdens een brainstormsessie. Nadien vond het eigenlijke onderzoek plaats in Groep A. We ontwikkelden een pre- en postmeting met kwantitatieve en kwalitatieve observaties tijdens enkele activiteiten en twee specifieke oefeningen, namelijk duim- en pincetgreep en oog- handcoördinatie. Tegelijkertijd maakten we veertien spelletjes en activiteiten om de fijne motoriek te trainen. Deze werden na de premeting ingezet in Groep A. Door onvoorziene omstandigheden vielen veel oefenmomenten weg en kon de postmeting niet uitgevoerd worden. Hierdoor konden we de evolutie van de leerlingen niet onderzoeken. De algemene conclusie van dit onderzoek was dat er verschillende spelletjes en activiteiten om fijne motoriek te trainen bestaan, maar dat deze niet allemaal even efficiënt, eenvoudig om te maken noch als fijn ervaren werden door de leerlingen. Daarom werd een opsomming gemaakt van de interessantste spelletjes en activiteiten. Vervolgens toonden de onderzoeksresultaten uit de premeting aan dat de leerlingen van Groep A reeds over een behoorlijke fijne motoriek beschikten, maar dat dit niet altijd tot uiting kwam doordat ze aan een traag tempo werkten en gevoelig waren voor afleidende stimuli in de klas.

Abstract/Notes: The main purpose of this research is examining the effect of Montessori education approach on 4-6 years old children's concept acquisition (school readiness, direction/position, self/social awareness, texture/material, quantity and time/sequence), social adaptation (communication, daily living, socialization and motor skills) and fine motor skills.As a method of this research was preferred pre-test/ post-test, experimental and control group. Pre-test/post-test was carried out to examine effect of the Montessori education on 4-6 years old children who are experimental group and control group was formed to compare effect of Montessori education on experimental group. Sample of research was conducted 4-6 years old 24 children who were educated with Montessori education at Gazi University Faculty of Vocational Education Department of Child Development and Education Application Preschool and 4-6 years old 24 children who were educated at Ankara University Application Preschool and Child Club where MoNE's curriculum was carried out. For the first experiment, curriculum which contains aims of learning of Montessori education was applied on experimental group from 2008 September to 2009 January and MoNE's curriculum was applied on control group at the same time. In addition to for the second experiment, sensory education was applied with sensory material which contain in Montessori education approach on experimental group from 2009 January to June and MoNE's curriculum was applied on control group at the same time.For acquisitions of children's concepts such as school readiness, direction/position, self/social awareness, texture/material, quantity and time/sequence, Bracken Basic Concept Scale-Revised, for adaptive behavior of children such as communication, daily living, socialization Vineland II Adaptive Behavior Scales and for children's fine motor skills Observing Form of Fine Motor Skills were used as data collecting instruments.Comparing both groups for pre-test and post-test mean score which obtain from Bracken Basic Concept Scale-Revised results show that statistical differences were found between experimental and control group and these differences were in support of experimental group. There are differences between children who were obtained education from Montessori approach and MoNE's curriculum in school readiness, direction/position, self/social awareness, texture/material, quantity and time/sequence areas. Result of statistical analysis show that there are differences between children who were obtained education from Montessori approach and MoNE's curriculum in communication, daily living, socialization and motor skills areas. There are also differences found between children who were obtained education from Montessori approach and MoNE's curriculum in fine motor skills areas.Finally, results show that Montessori education approach has positive effects on children's acquisition of concepts, social adaptation and fine motor skills. / Bu araştırmanın temel amacı Montessori eğitim yönteminin 4-6 yaş arası çocukların kavram edinimleri (okula hazırlık seviyeleri, yön/konum, bireysel/sosyal farkındalık, yapı/materyal, miktar ve zaman/sıralama), sosyal uyumları (iletişim, günlük yaşam, sosyalleşme ve motor becerileri) ve küçük kas motor becerileri üzerindeki etkisini incelemektir.Bu çalışmada araştırma modeli olarak ön test, son test ve deney-kontrol gruplu deneysel desen tercih edilmiştir. Araştırmada deney grubundaki 4-6 yaş arası çocuklara verilen Montessori eğitiminin etkisini ölçmek amacı ile ön test-son test çalışması yapılmış ve Montessori eğitim yönteminin deney grubu üzerindeki etkisini karşılaştırmak amacı ile kontrol grubu oluşturulmuştur. Örneklemin oluşturulmasında deney grubunu Gazi Üniversitesi Mesleki Eğitim Fakültesi Çocuk Gelişimi Eğitimi Bölümü Uygulama Anaokuluna devam eden ve Montessori eğitimi alan 4-6 yaş arasındaki 24 çocuk, kontrol grubunu ise Ankara Üniversitesi Uygulama Anaokulu ve Çocuk Kulübüne devam eden MEB Okul Öncesi Eğitim Programının uygulandığı okul öncesi eğitimi alan 24 çocuk oluşturmuştur. Araştırmanın 1. deneyini gerçekleştirmek için deney grubuna Montessori yönteminde belirtilen öğrenme görevlerinden oluşan eğitim programı Eylül 2008 - Ocak 2009 tarihleri arasında uygulanmış, Kontrol grubuna ise MEB Okul Öncesi Eğitim Programı uygulanmıştır. Bununla birlikte araştırmanın 2.deneyini gerçekleştirmek için deney grubuna Ocak-Haziran 2009 tarihleri arasında Montessori eğitim yönteminde bulunan duyu alanı materyalleri ile duyu eğitimi verilmiş, Kontrol grubu ise MEB Okul Öncesi Eğitim Programı kapsamındaki okul öncesi eğitimine devam etmiştir.Araştırmada veri toplama araçları olarak; çocukların kavram edinimleri (okula hazırlık seviyeleri, yön/konum, bireysel/sosyal farkındalık, yapı/materyal, miktar ve zaman/sıralama) için Bracken Temel Kavram Ölçeği Gözden Geçirilmiş Formu (Bracken Basic Concept Scale-Revised), çocukların sosyal uyumları için; (iletişim, günlük yaşam, sosyalleşme ve motor becerileri) Vineland II Uyum Davranış Ölçeği ve çocukların küçük kas motor becerileri için; Küçük Kas Motor Becerileri Gözlem Formu kullanılmıştır.Bulgular, grupların Bracken Temel Kavram Ölçeğinin alt ölçeklerinden aldıkları ön test-son test aritmetik ortalama puanları karşılaştırıldığında, deney ve kontrol grubu arasındaki istatistiksel farkların deney grubu lehine olduğunu göstermektedir. Montessori eğitimi alan çocuklar ve Montessori eğitimi almayan çocuklar karşılaştırıldığında okula hazırlık seviyeleri, yön/konum, bireysel/sosyal farkındalık, yapı/materyal, miktar ve zaman/sıralama gibi kavram alanlarında istatistiksel olarak deney grubu lehine anlamlı farklılıklar bulunmuştur. İletişim, günlük yaşam, sosyalleşme ve motor becerileri gibi sosyal uyum becerileri yönünden Montessori eğitimi alan çocuklar lehine istatistiksel olarak anlamlı farklılıklar yapılan analizler sonucunda bulunmuştur. Küçük kas motor becerileri alanında da iki grup arasında istatistiksel olarak anlamlı farklılıkların olduğu bulunmuş ve bu farklılığın deney grubu lehine olduğu saptanmıştır. Sonuç olarak Montessori eğitim yönteminin çocukların kavram edinimleri, sosyal uyumları ve küçük kas motor becerileri üzerinde olumlu etkisinin olduğu söylenebilir.

Abstract/Notes: 25 children in a morning class of a Montessori preschool were administered a program of perceptual-motor training which stressed control of impulsiveness and development of attentional skills. 24 children in the afternoon class were controls. All children were administered a battery of psychological tests prior to training and again 7 mo. later at the termination of the training. All the children (both groups) exhibited a mean 12- to 13-point gain in Peabody Picture Vocabulary IQ and a mean 13- to 14-point gain in Draw-A-Person IQ. In addition, experimental Ss exhibited mean gains on the Auditoryvocal and Visual-motor Sequential subtests of the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities and in Ego-control scores of the Arrow-Dot Test. Controls showed no such gains. It is concluded that the perceptual-motor training program might supply a useful adjunct to the regular Montessori curriculum.

Abstract/Notes: This study is aimed at examining the effect of eight weeks of selected virtual-assisted games based on Montessori pedagogical principal on the motor proficiency and perceived self-control in the children with spastic hemiplegia during the coronavirus outbreak. In this quasi-experimental study, the children () with hemiplegia were randomly selected and assigned to either the experimental group or the control group. In the pretest, motor skills and self-controlling were evaluated using 36-item Lincoln-Oseretsky Motor Development Scale and Children’s Perceived Self-Control Scale (CPSC) (ss, 1982), respectively. The experimental group then engaged in three 45-minute sessions of virtual game play over the course of eight weeks. 24 hours following the last practice session, the posttest was given on the same day as the pretest. After ensuring the normal distribution of collected data with Shapiro-Wilk test, the data were analyzed using Analysis of Covariance test (ANCOVA). Results showed that the experimental group compared to the control group was better in the motor proficiency and perceived self-control after performing selected virtual-assisted Montessori games can significantly improve motor proficiency and perceived self-control (). This pattern of data revealed that the virtual-assisted intervention based on Montessori pedagogical principles may increase motor proficiency and self-control in children with hemiplegia, particularly when confronted with the limitations imposed on by the coronavirus epidemic.
