Introduction: This study was an attempt to investigate the effect of the neurofeedback training on visual perception of the primary school students with dyscalculia.
Methods: The study was semi-experimentally designed using the pre-test and post-test for both experimental and control groups. Subjects were 20 students with mathematics learning disorder aging 10 to 12 years who were selected using the convenience sampling method. They were randomly assigned to two matched groups, including an experimental group who underwent neurofeedback training (n=10) and a control group (n=10) with no intervention. All subjects performed the Frostig Visual Perception Test as a pre- and post-test. Data were analyzed using the dependent and independent t-test and covariance.
Results: According to our results, neurofeedback training resulted in a noticeable increase in visual perception abilities as well as theta inhibition in experimental group compared to controls. Meanwhile, the intervention did not show any significant effect on the enhancement of beta wave.
Conclusion: In conclusion, neurofeedback, as a training method, may be considered as a possible therapeutic modality in mathematical learning disability disorder.
