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
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
