Development of Teacher Module for Learning Static Dominant Movement for Students with Autism


his research aims to offer solutions to overcome the difficulty of teachers in finding resources for PJOK learning modules in SLB schools. The purpose of this study was to develop a teaching module for learning about static dominant motion for students with autism in class 1 SDLB. This research follows the ADDIE model. A quantitative descriptive data analysis technique was used in this study, while the data was collected using a questionnaire instrument. The research subjects were 9 autistic students and 18 special school teachers. The module has been validated by media experts, material experts, and characteristics experts for autistic children. The results of the large group trial showed a percentage value of 92%. The product of this module was then concluded to be valid and suitable for use by SLB teachers. This module is expected to provide convenience for teachers in teaching autistic students, especially static dominant motion.
