Background: Improving the working memory of students with learning disabilities and helping them gain academic achievement as well as preventing further injuries are very important. Researches have been done in this field, but few researches examined computer assisted cognitive rehabilitation, sensory integration and combining these two methods to improve working memory in students with learning disabilitie. Aims: This study was carried out by the aim of comparing the effectiveness of computer assisted cognitive rehabilitation, sensory integration and combination of these two methods on improving working memory of students with specific learning disabilities. Method: The research method was quasi-experimental with a pre-test/post-test design with unequal groups. The statistical population of the present study was students with specific learning disabilities who referred to Pendar and Atieh clinics in Tehran in the academic year 2019-2020, among them, 58 students with specific learning disabilities were selected by purposive sampling and were randomly replaced in three experimental groups and one control group. 14 people in the first experimental group received computer assisted cognitive rehabilitation intervention, 15 people in the second experimental group received the sensory integration intervention and 16 people in the third experimental group received a combination of these two interventions and 13 people in the control group did not receive the intervention. N back (1958) test was used to measure working memory performance. Data analysis was performed using variance analysis with repeated measures. Results: Computer assisted cognitive rehabilitation, sensory integration and combination of these two methods significantly improve working memory in students with specific learning disabilities (P< 0/01). However, there is no difference between these three methods in improving working memory.
Conclusions: Computer assisted cognitive rehabilitation, sensory integration, and a combination of these two methods can be used to improve the working memory of students with learning disabilities.
