ABSTRACT

The study was in challenges hindering performance of learners with learning difficulties

in the regular primary schools in Nuu zone Mwingi District. The method used in the

study was quantative approach. The data collected was obtained through questionnaires.

It was analyzed and interpreted using the mean as the measure for central tendency.

Research strategy employed as survey method.

The data was obtained from 49 respondents out of the 62 originally in the sample

population. These included 2 education officers, 16 teachers, 6 parents and 25 learners.

The major findings of the study indicate that teachers, parents and peers as well as the

curriculum pose challenges to learners with learning difficulties. Such challenges include

~ilure to be identified early for proper intervention measurers, showing such learners that

they are failures isolating such learners and despising them as well as the curriculum

context being too wide and complex for coverage by search learners.

Each group of people therefore has several roles to play to support such learners through

use of appropriate teaching approaches, ensuring adequate provisions for the learners and

positive interaction with them and. above all early identification and planning appropriate

intervention measurers. There is need also to diversify the curriculum.

The researcher recommended that there is need to create awareness about such learners,

teachers should be trained on special needs education and examinations should be set

bearing in mind the ability level of such learners. Learners with learning difficulties need individual attention for proper remediation and should be done during the school holiday
