With Multi stage random sampling method, 40 children who have entry criteria were selected and randomly assigned to control and experimental groups. The instrumentation comprised the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence and Behavior Rating Inventory for Executive Function-preschool.
Results: Analysis of covariance and Man Cova showed that all the dimensions of executive functions significantly were increased in the experimental group (p=0.001).
Conclusion: These results have clinical implications for the increase and improvement of executive function among pre-school children with neuropsychological/developmental learning disability.
