This study was carried out to find out factors affecting the education of children with low vision
in the Central division ofisiolo district.
The researcher was interested in finding out the views of different people towards the education
of children with low vision in the area, therefore qualitative approach was employed to collect
The researcher chose Headteachers, teachers, parents and visually impaired children as sample
population because through them relevant and appropriate information would be obtained.
The researcher also used interview and questionnaire as research instruments. Interview guides
were used to collect data from parents and d children with low vision because it enabled the
researcher to make clarifications on some views given and make possible adjustments depending
on their moods and needs. Headteachers and teachers were given questionnaires because they
were assumed literate enough to handle these instruments
The findings pointed out that although the children and their parents have positive attitudes
towards their education although the poor performance of low vision children was greatly
attributed to poor parental participation and poor attitude of teachers and administration. There
are a number of challenges affecting the education of low vision children in the division and
► Poor social economic status of their families
► Poor academic performance
► Poor/bad peer groupings
► Ancient cultural beliefs
► Lack of self motivation and zeal in learning
► Poor teacher-pupil relationship
The researcher therefore recommended that:
•Organization of meetings for parents and teachers to interact.
•Guiding and counseling low vision children by qualified personnel.
•The community to be sensitized on the value oflow vision children.
•Possible ways of eradicating poverty in families especially those with visually impaired children.
