Therefore, researchers are working to help to improve the ability to recognize a flat wake, through the medium of the flannel board.

The research is a Single Subject Research to design AB. Data analysis techniques using visual analysis graphs. Subject of research is mild mental retardation child class V. Measurement variables using percentages.

Observations were carried out as many as 16 times observation, namely six times on the condition (A), and ten times on the condition (B). In the conditions of (A) the data obtained is 18%, 18%, 18%, 18%, 18%, 18%. Based on these data the child can be said to have engaged in identifying flat wake, either classify, sort, differentiate, identify and name the flat wake.
