Abstract

This research is aimed to empower the logical mathematical intelligence of the inclusive group of the 4-6 years old children by implementing the neourosensory instructional approach through holistic integrative instructional process The mix method research, which is carried out by action research is applied in order to do this study. Rooting in the mix method research. there are two targets to achieve in applying the research method, they are (1) quantitative method is aimed to get to know the improvement of logical mathematical intellligence, and (2) qualitative method is apllied in order to know the implementation of the neurosensory instructional approach through holistic integrative instructional process to improve the logical mathematical intelligence. Therefore, the research is started by measuring the actual abilities of the logical mathematical intelligence of the children by using valid and realiable formal multiple intelligences assessment instruments for the 4-6 years old children, especially, in the part of the logical mathematical intelligence.. The research is ended by measuring the improvement of the logical mathematical intelligence of the children after participating the neurosensory instructional approach. Purposive sampling is apllied in choosing 15 research sample which involves 12 normal children and 3 special need children. The study reveals that the inclusive group of the 4-6 years old children’s logical mathematical intelligence are improved from under average up to above excellent after participating the neurosensory instructional approch.
