ABSTRACT

The study was based on “attitudes of regular primary school teachers towards

inclusion of learners with visual impairment into regular schools in Dagoretti

Division Nairobi Kenya.

The absence of an integrated school dealing with learners with visual impairment in

the division, led the researcher to investigate the teachers attitudes towards inclusion

oflearners with visual impairment.

From the researchers findings it was clear that most of the teachers have positive

attitude towards the inclusion of learners with special needs. However these teachers

lack the knowledge, skills and equipment to handle learners with special needs. The

researcher therefore recommend the Government to train more teachers on the area

ofSpecial Needs Education.

The~ Teachers Service Commission (TSC) need to post contact teachers (at least one

contract teacher) in every regular primary school who would work together with the

itinerant teacher.

There is also need to give special allowances to the contact teachers in regular

primary schools.
