This research had been conducted within twenty four meetings in three months with three circles. The result of this reseach is that the implementation of Glenn Domann method did not significantly increase the reading ability of the mental retardation students. Students are more interested with the object drawn than the words provided. The no involvement of parents during research could be the factor why the influence is not significant. However, although the facts that the students have low intelligence and mental retardation became the crucial factors of the failure of the method, the positive movement and more concerns on the students with the same condition must always be committed.Keywords: Mental retardation, reading, glenn domann method
