Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of abacus modification media on the ability to recognize the concept of numbers in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study used a research approach that combines quantitative and qualitative approaches, with the type of pre-experiment research with the One Group Pre-test - Post-test research design. Data collected were obtained from written tests and observations. The findings reported that there was an increase in the ability to recognize the concept of numbers in children with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) after being treated 8 times with modified abacus media. This is evidenced by the results of the pre-test the ability to recognize the concept of numbers which is still low, then after being given treatment with modified abacus media, the post-test results showed an increase. It can be concluded that modified abacus media is effective in improving the ability to recognize number concepts in children with ASD.
