Finally, the Montessori method was performed on the students of the experimental group for three months and the control group was exposed to traditional education. Data collection tools in this study were a researcher-made mathematical skill test and Barton's Communication Skills Questionnaire (1990).
Findings: The results of covariance analysis indicated that Montevere method has significant effect on the learning of math concepts (p <0/002) and communication skills development (p <0/001) in students with mental retardation.
Conclusion: Marie Montessori 's teaching has a positive impact on the learning of math concepts and the development of communication skills in mentally retarded children.
