Abstract

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability derived from neurological. This is characterized by the difficulty of recognizing an accurate word and poor spelling and decoding ability. This research aims at determining the effectiveness of the language experience approach to improve reading skills of dyslexic students. This research is an experimental research in the form of Single Subject Research which applies ABA design. The subjects of the research are two second grade dyslexic students. The data were collected using the test works technique and analysed using descriptive statistics technique. The result of the data analysis shows that the language experience approach is proven to increase the average score of the two subjects. In the baseline 1, the average score obtained by YD was 34.6. After the intervention was given, YD obtained 43.9. In the measurement in baseline 2, YD final score increased to 51.7. Meanwhile, the average score obtained by BT in the baseline 1 was 36.3.After the intervention was given, BT obtained 42.5. Finally, in the measurement in baseline 2, BT final score increased to 49.7. In conclusion, the use of the language experience approach is effective at improving reading ability of second grade dyslexic students.
