ABSTRACT

The study was to investigate the causes of poor academic performance among the hearing

impaired learners in regular schools in Samburu zone, Kinango district.

The researcher used questionnaires to collect information from the respondents. The

respondents were 25 teachers and 50 learners from the three sampled schools.

The researcher found that in comparison with their hearing counterparts, hearing impaired

learners perform poorly in academic work due to a number of factors.

These include:-

• Poor methods of teaching and practices by regular teachers;

• Lack of knowledge and skills to handle them;

• Lack of resources

• Communication barriers and lack of language interpreters;

• Negative attitude from teachers, parents and peers towards deaf children

The researcher made recommendations and suggestions that the government should embark on

training and equipping all teachers with skills regarding special needs education. Seminars and

workshops should be organized to sensitize all the people dealing with hearing impaired learners.

Public awareness should be made to people in order to accept and suppo1i these learners.
