Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of android-based Bamber educational games for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in improving the aspect of counting, especially reduction. This research uses quantitative research methods with a pre-experimental research design. The design model used was one group pre-test post-test. Data were collected through observation and written tests. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. The findings reported that there was an increase in the ability to count (reduction) in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) after being given 8 interventions with android-based Bamber educational game media. This is evidenced by the results of the pre-test the ability to count (reduction) is still low, the subject shows the behavior of refusing to learn to count. Then after being given treatment 8 times with the bamber educational game media, the results of the post-test showed the development of the ability to count (reduction) with a written test score that was higher than the pre-test written test score, and the subject showed an enthusiastic response in counting with Bamber education. It can be concluded that the android-based Bamber educational game is very effective for improving the ability to count in children with ASD.
