ABSTRACT This study aimed to investigate the role of participation of children with deafness in formal education activities and its contributions to their socio-economic empowerment. Participation of CWDs in formal education activities that included, universal primary education, secondary education, special needs education among others was hindered by the inaccessibility in the institutional context like educational structures for example, the staircases and latrines, curriculum inadequacies, lack of instructional and scholastic materials, and special needs education teachers. Social challenges were identified as negative attitudes towards hearing impairment, negligence of their parents while the environmental ones included long distances, traffic and terrain. However, poverty was identified as the key economic barrier. The study provided a deeper analysis of the levels of participation of CWDs in the formal education activities. It was conducted to increase the awareness of the concerned stakeholders particularly policy makers and planners charged with the responsibly for providing universal education. A number of recommendations were made that would help to improve the level of participation of children with deafness in formal education activities and its contributions to their socio-economic empowerment following the order of the study objectives.
