Sixty-two children aged between 6-12 years with intellectual disability were recruited using purposive sampling. Participants were divided into two groups (experimental group=31, control group=31). The experimental group was given training using video modeling in 4 sessions, with each for 50 minutes; and self-development program in 4 sessions, in 50 minutes per each, while control group was given self-development program for 8 sessions, with each for 50 minutes. Observation checklist of dressing skill before and after intervention was adopted from Nursing Outcome Classification in Indonesian version. Data were analyzed using Mann-Whitney to compare posttest score between experimental and control group.
