ABSTRACT 

 

This study is about inclusive education in two pilot schools in Manya Krobo District.  The methodology utilized was qualitative.  It mainly involved the use of interviews and observation as the method for data collection. In all 31 respondents were conveniently sampled for the study and were made up of 12 teachers and 19 pupils from four different categories of disabilities. Analysis of the data revealed that the teachers had no idea about inclusive education.  The teachers were not adequately prepared for the concept.  Rather a teacher from each school was provided      inservice training. The attitude of some of the teachers was also a barrier to the programme.  Also four (4) of the nine (9) categories of disabilities were identified in the schools under study. Finally, recommendations were made in the light of the findings, and this included among others a day or two observation training at any of the special schools to enable teachers handle the different categories of disabilities in the classrooms, annual in-service training should be organized, to build confidence in the regular teachers and officers of special Education Division should pay periodic visit to the schools to evaluate the progress of special needs children.
