Abstract

Reading skills needed for mild mental retardation children, but due to the presence of obstacles in the level of intelligence, mild mental retardation children need quite long time to be able to achieve the ability to reading. The purpose of this study is to improve early reading skills (simple single words) in children with mild retardation using VAKT (Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic and Tactile) methods. The type of research used is single case experiment design with the A-B-A design. In the Baseline A1 phase, carried out a total of 3 sessions without treatment, in the phase of Intrevention (B) is conducted as many as 6 sessions using VAKT method and assistance some media, as well as in the Post Intervention phase, carried out a total of 3 sessions i.e. capabilities of reading after being given the intervention. Subjects in this study are 3 of mild retardation children class III or IV Primary School Extraordinary (8-11 years) selected using purposive sampling technique. Intake of data using objective test read the words. Methods of data analysis is using simple descriptive statistical analysis. The results of the research shows that the VAKT methods can be used to improve the early reading in the mild retardation children.
