Abstract
Background of the Study: The terms Mental Retardation, Intellectual disability and mental challenge are used interchangeably. Intellect comprises perception, memory, recognition, conceptualization, convergent and divergent reasoning (creativity and classification), verbal facility and motor competence. There is noticeable deficiency in motor, cognitive, social, and language functions. Mentally challenged child is complicated by physical and emotional problems.
Objectives: To assess the level of sensory perception and emotional wellbeing among mentally challenged children before and after administering sensory stimulation technique among experimental and control group. To determine the effectiveness of sensory stimulation technique on sensory perception and emotional wellbeing among mentally challenged children. To compare the level of sensory perceptual ability and emotional wellbeing among both experimental and control group. To associate the level of sensory perception and emotional wellbeing with demographic variables.
Hypothesis: There will be significant difference between the post-test score of sensory perception in experimental and control group among mentally challenged children There will be significant difference between the post-test score of emotional well-being in experimental and control group among mentally challenged children.
Methodology: A quasi experimental pre and post-test control group design is selected for the study Purposive sampling technique was used for the study.
Final Result and Conclusion: In the pre-test & post test scores sensory perceptual ability of both experimental & control group. Among the experimental group 8(26.7%) will show probable difference, majority 22(73.3%) will show definite difference, in the pre-test. But in the post-test 4(13.3%) of the samples is on typical performance, and 14(46.7%) of the sample will show probable differences and 12(40%) of the sample is on definite difference. In the control group 7(23.3%) will show probable difference, and 23(76.7%) is on definite difference, in the pre-test. But there was no change in the post test score as 8(26.7%) will show on probable difference and 22(73.3%) is on definite difference. In the pre-test & post test scores of emotional well being level for both experimental & control group. Among the experimental group 5(26.7%) will show mild emotional well-being, majority 25(83.3%) will show moderate emotional well-being, in the pre-test. But in the post-test 16(53.3%) of the samples is on mild emotional wellbeing, and 14(46.7%) of the sample will show moderate emotional well-being. In the control group 7(23.3%) will show mild emotional wellbeing, and 23(76.7%) is on moderate emotional well-being, in the pre-test. But there was no change in the post test score as 7(23.7%) will show mild emotional well-being and 23(76.6%) is on moderate emotional well-being.
