ABSTRACT

This study was aimed at investigating challenges facing visually impaired learners in an

inclusive setting.

To collect required information on the set objectives, the researcher used the survey strategy

which employed questionnaires. This instrument was used because it was found to be cheap and

could easily reach many respondents in different areas of the study area.

The researcher’s target population was all primary teachers in inclusive schools especially those

who were in touch with the visually impaired learners.

The data collected from the above respondents was organized using a qualitative method. The

study found out that most teachers lacked skills to easily communicate visually impaired

learners, most schools lacked materials to use in teaching these children, some teachers still have

negative attitude towards disabled and children with visual impairment were highly assumed to

be learning at the pace of the sighted or totally ignored academically at the expense the so called

normal learners.

To improve on the education the visually impaired learners, it was recommended that children

with profoundly low vision should placed in special schools where they can benefit from the services of specialized teachers, distance education be in special needs at various institutions be emphasized, instructional materials be provided by government, seminars to sensitize teachers and the public by various professionals be intensified and persons with special needs be involved in planning and implementation of special needs education programs.
