Abstract

In this study, the effect of the schema-based change problem-solving method embedded

in the social story on the verbal mathematics change problem-solving performance

of the third-grade students with learning disabilities was investigated. After

communicating with the classroom teachers, three students with learning disabilities

were selected and participated in the study. In the research, a special program was

prepared for the teaching of verbal mathematics problems and presented in a social

story. Before creating examples in both verbal mathematics and social stories in the

program, detailed data were obtained from students and students’ teachers about

personal information and their choices about various topics. The research was carried

out according to the multiple probe model between subjects, one of the single-subject

experimental models. In the research findings, it was observed that the education

process was effective and the correct responses of the students to the change

problems continued after the end of the education. In addition, it was concluded

that it caused them to generalize their verbal mathematics problem-solving skills to

different environments.
