DIAS, Tatiane Lebre; ENUMO, Sônia Regina Fiorim  and  AZEVEDO JUNIOR, Romildo Rocha. Influences of a program of creativity in the cognitive and academic performance of students with learning disabilities. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2004, vol.9, n.3, pp.429-437. ISSN 1413-7372.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-73722004000300011.

Creativity in children with learning disabilities is a complex process due to the academic difficulties that those children have to face. This research has investigated the effects of a creativity program on the academic and cognitive performance of 17 students with learning disabilities, from the second and third grades of elementary public school in Vitória/ES, comparing to the control group. The results indicated a significant improvement in the academic (School Performance Test) and cognitive performance (Raven) of the group who was trained.

Keywords : creativity; learning disability; academic performance.
