According to the research, a substantial proportion of children in India have neurological disorders, and they frequently face barriers to education. The study examines the current situation of education for children with neurological problems in India, as well as the policies and laws that regulate their education. The review also looks at the difficulties that these children, their families, and educators have had in implementing inclusive education. Lastly, the report explores interventions and techniques that can help children with neurological disorders be included in Indian education settings with a concerted effort from all stakeholders involved in the education process.</span></p> Risky Amelia Ana Rafikayati Amelia Rizky Idhartono Copyright (c) 2023 Risky Amelia https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-04-30 2023-04-30 4 1 1 9 10.36456/special.vol4.no1.a7203 The Effectiveness of Using Clay Media in Improving the Fine Motor Ability of Down Syndrome Children https://jurnal.unipasby.ac.id/index.php/special/article/view/6927 <p>The purpose of this study was to determine the improvement of fine motor skills through Clay media in children with Down syndrome at Yayasan Melati Anak Bangsa Martapura. The approach used in this study is a quantitative approach with the type of SSR (Single Subject Research) research. The design used in this study is A1-B-A2, for A1 is the baseline phase 1, B is the intervention phase and A2 is the baseline phase 2 The data recording technique uses direct observation using magnitude data recording. The data analysis technique used is graphic visual analysis including analysis between conditions and analysis in conditions. The subjects of this study were children with Down syndrome at Yayasan Melati Anak Bangsa Martapura with the initials HT. The results showed that there was an increase in a positive direction in fine motor skills, it can be seen from the data obtained in the baseline 1 condition, the mean level was 27%, the intervention condition the mean level was 71.3%, and the baseline condition 2 had a mean level of 88%. The result of overlap from phase A1 to B is 0% and phase B to A2 is 0%. From these data, it can be concluded that the clay media used in this study can improve the fine motor skills of children with Down syndrome at Yayasan Melati Anak Bangsa Martapura.</p> Dwi Putri Sekar Harum Mirnawati Jiyanta Copyright (c) 2023 Dwi Putri Sekar Harum, Mirnawati, Jiyanta https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-05-05 2023-05-05 4 1 10 18 10.36456/special.vol4.no1.a6927 Discrete Trial Teaching Method to Improve Receptive Language Skills in Children with Global Developmental Delay https://jurnal.unipasby.ac.id/index.php/special/article/view/7106 <p>The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of the Discrete Trial Teaching method in improving the receptive language skills of children with Global Developmental Delay. The receptive language skills provided in this intervention are recognizing body parts in the facial area. This research is an-experimental research with a single subject research, which uses the A-B-A model. Baseline measurements were carried out twice, namely before and after the implementation of the intervention. This study used 20 sessions consisting of 5 sessions for the first baseline, 10 intervention sessions and 5 sessions for the second baseline. The participant of this study was a boy aged 3 years and 6 months who was diagnosed with Global Developmental Delay. Data analysis used in this study is visual analysis which includes 6 components. The results showed that there was an increase in scores and with an upward trend and good stability, so it can be concluded that the Discrete Trial Teaching method can effectively improve the receptive language skills of children with Global Developmental Delay.</p> Elya marfu'atun Copyright (c) 2023 Elyamarfuatun https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-05-05 2023-05-05 4 1 19 26 10.36456/special.vol4.no1.a7106 Parental Involvement in Learning Programs for Children with Special Needs in Indonesia https://jurnal.unipasby.ac.id/index.php/special/article/view/7125 <p>The practice of education in schools still needs to improve in the form of limited studies focusing on parental involvement in the learning process of children with special needs in Indonesia. This study aimed to identify the forms of parental involvement in planning, implementing, and evaluating learning programs from 2017 to 2022 using the Systematic Literature Review (SLR) method. The stages of implementation using the Cooper version are (1) formulating the problem, (2) collecting data, (3) evaluating the feasibility of the data, (4) analysis and interpreting the relevant data, and (5) organizing and presenting the results. Data was collected by searching for keywords related to the concept to be reviewed on the data source page (Google Scholar, Perpusnas.go.id, and Portal Garuda). The results of this study indicate that parental involvement in learning planning is as a giver and recipient of information about the child's condition in the assessment process but has yet to be involved in determining the learning program. Meanwhile, mostly parents accompanied children when studying at home during the pandemic, despite many challenges in the learning implementation. As for the evaluation process, parents monitored their children’s progress and gave feedback to the teachers about their children’s achievements. The findings of this study indicate the need for further studies to improve school-parent collaboration in Indonesia.</p> Muhaimi Mughni Prayogo Kristi Wardani Haniek Farida Copyright (c) 2023 Muhaimi Mughni Prayogo, Kristi Wardani, Haniek Farida https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-05-05 2023-05-05 4 1 27 41 10.36456/special.vol4.no1.a7125 Breaking Barriers: Examining Inclusive Education in Islamic Schools through the Merdeka Belajar Curriculum https://jurnal.unipasby.ac.id/index.php/special/article/view/7428 <p>This study analyses how inclusive education is being implemented in Madrasah in Indonesia through the "Merdeka Belajar" program. The research uses document and content analysis to examine the Decree of Ministry of Religious Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia about guidelines for the implementation of the “Merdeka Belajar” curriculum in madrasahs (KMA RI No. 347 of 2022) policy document as a means to comprehend the intricate essence and origin of the issue, particularly in relation to inclusive education. The study reveals that the policy document mentioned the term diversity, students with disabilities, and inclusive education, however, the terms are limited and still need more specific explanations about inclusive education. The result shows that the "Merdeka Belajar" program is an important initiative that seeks to create inclusive classrooms where all students can receive a quality education in Madrasah setting.</p> Khofidotur Rofiah Farida Isroani Muhammad Nurrohman Jauhari Copyright (c) 2023 Khofidotur Rofiah, Farida Isroani, Muhammad Nurrohman Jauhari https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-08-23 2023-08-23 4 1 42 49 10.36456/special.vol4.no1.a7428 Analysis of Nature-Based-Learning for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in Elementary School Age: A Systematic Review https://jurnal.unipasby.ac.id/index.php/special/article/view/7288 <p>The education system in the world is continually evolving. Nature-Based Learning (NBL) is an innovative learning model in the field of education that can be applied to children with special needs, particularly those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Children with ASD in elementary school age often experience difficulties in communication and socialization, necessitating appropriate interventions, one of which is the implementation of NBL as a learning model. This study is a qualitative research that utilizes literature review as the data collection method, analyzed using the Miles and Hubberman technique. The findings of this research reveal the significance of NBL in the elementary school age, where it creates a calm and non-threatening learning environment, facilitates collaboration, communication, and teamwork through group activities in nature. The impact of NBL on the psychological development of children with autism is highlighted, encompassing sensory regulation, reduced stress, improved focus, enhanced social skills, cognitive development, and a positive relationship with the environment.</p> Shabrina Salsabila Zakiyatul Fikriyah Laila Muna Copyright (c) 2023 Shabrina Salsabila, Zakiyatul Fikriyah Laila Muna https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-08-07 2023-08-07 4 1 50 55 10.36456/special.vol4.no1.a7288
