ABSTRACT Kenya is a signatory to the provisiOn of Universal Education for all in pnmary schools. The new government that took power in December 2002 has implemented this. The quality of education in primary schools needs to be emphasised as it marks the beginning and the foundation of the learner's success in education achievement. Mathematics is one of the core subjects that determine whether the learner will qualify for the most marketable profession as well as course e.g. medical science architecture and engineering. The subject performance in national examination is quite challenging due to specific learning difficulties. Most learners despair at lower levels hence misses the chance to acquire prestigious professions. Most learners develop a negative attitude towards mathematics. This should not imply that mathematics is only meant for genius learners. Teaching being a profession should aim at instilling the recommended changes to the learner. This is to say there should be knowledge acquisition skills and attitude change. Various methods should be adopted to assist these learners with specific learning difficulties in mathematics. Therefore in an inclusive set up, teachers face a lot of challenges in teaching mathematics to learners with special needs. Therefore the research was aimed at establishing the problems teachers experience in school and also suggests possible remedies to alleviate this shortcoming. The research was carried out with view of suggesting the possibility of improving learning for learners with SLDs in mathematics.
