Abstract

The objective of the study is to examine the cognitive ability of children with learning disabilities (LD) who were involved in the PDKNet education program. The children involved in this study are made up of children with learning disabilities (LD). A total of 106 children from 7 Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) Centre in Malacca took part in this study.

The instrument used in this study is divided into 5 main basic categories which consisted of the ability to identify computer hardwares, alphabets, words, colours and shapes. The findings of the study indicated that more than half of the children with learning disabilities (LD) were able to identify components of a computer such as monitor, keyboard and mouse. More than half of the LD children were also able to recognize and pronounce words and alphabets. However, they face difficulties in reading and writing the respected words as well as having difficulties in providing examples for the shapes asked.

Therefore, teaching children especially children with learning disabilities should be given more attention to help them to read and to write.
