This study investigated the effects of gesture-based learning with virtual reality (GBLVR) on the counting ability of three children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). Those elected were the children who had difficulty with counting skills in the classroom. By attending GBLVR math courses, children with CP learned counting numbers from 1 to 10 intuitively by moving their body and interacting with the design made for them. The single-subject experimental design within the multiple probe design across subjects was used to evaluate the effects. Virtual Reality Gesture-based Learning was the independent variable; the score from the Counting Ability was the dependent variable. The results of this study show an instant effect, a maintenance effect, and a generalization effect of the score of Counting Ability were found.
