ABSTRACT

This study was carried out to analyze the challenges that teachers face in

teaching the visually impaired learners in Ongata Rongai zone in Kajiado

District, Rift Valley Province Kenya and this was used as a case study. Data

was collected through the use of interviews accompanied by observation and

questionnaires.

The study involved a sample of 70 respondents that is 50 teachers and 20

pupils. 8 teachers from each school and 3 pupils from each school while

Kiserian Primary was represented by 5 pupils and 10 teachers. All these were

involved in the school curriculum activities at different levels.

The study found that assistive materials help pupils with visual impairment to

easily access education. The study also found out that people living in Kajiado

District are more vulnerable to trachoma because of the untidy living

environment with a lot of flies around. It was also discovered that children with

visual impairment cannot be assisted by any regular teacher unless the teacher

is SNE compliant.

It was concluded that all teachers should get SNE training, Adaptive materials

should be made available and high clean environment standards should be

maintained. There was need for bores to be drilled for the community to access

water for domestic use and their large herds. This then results to collaboration

and networking of all stakeholders who include the parents, teachers learners government, social workers, paramedics and NGOs
