ABSTRACT

In this special study paper, the researcher aimed at establishing learning difficulties

encountered by the Pupils within hearing impairment in the inclusive setting. This study

was carried out in Machakos school for the deaf located in central division, Machakos

district. Ten class teachers represented the whole population. The researcher targeted a

sample population of Head teachers, class teachers, and all learners of ten classes. The

researcher used questionnaires as the main instrument to collect the data. Factors that have caused learning difficulties included teachers not been trained in special needs education, government not providing enough support services, large classes per teacher. Rigid curriculum and not barrier ji-ee environment. Also there is lack of good communication skills and negative attitude by teachers and parents towards the Pupils

with impairment. It is hoped that if all the above factors are addressed and effective teaching methods used, their difficulties may be lessened and improve their academic achievements.
