Effectiveness of Video Assisted Teaching on Knowledge of Parents on Management of Their Children with Intellectual Disability, in Selected Special Schools of Berhampur, India

Intellectual disabilities involve problems in general mental abilities that affect Intellectual functioning such as learning, problem solving, judgement and Adaptive behavior like activities of daily living such as communication and independent living. Moreover, a child with an intellectual disability (formerly called mental retardation) is not only a burden to the family but also to the society as whole. In addition, poor knowledge regarding care of such type of children adds additional stress on the parents and family. Studies in the specific subject area are scanty. This gap in knowledge prompted the design of the current study. One group pre-test and post-test Pre-experimental research design and evaluative approach was undertaken among 45 parents of children with ID studying then at Manovikas GEMM (Guidance and education centre for multiple and mental retardation) Berhampur, India, with the objective to assess the effectiveness of Video assisted teaching module on their knowledge in taking care of their children at home. Prior to implementation of VATM the Parents had average knowledge (37.84%) regarding home management of their children with ID whereas after administration of VATM the number increases to 53.87%; revealing good knowledge along with the difference in mean percentage of 16.03% which shows the effectiveness of the module undertaken in the study (VATM).
