ABSTRACT This study is a result of an academic research entitled “individualized education program and academic adaption of disabled learners in Ikutha district Kitui County, Kenya.” The purpose was to test the null hypothesis and if there is significant relationship between individualized education program and academic adaptation of disabled learners. The objectives of this study were to: establish the profile of the teachers in terms of: age, gender, marital status and working experience; determine the level of implementation of TEP approach in teaching; determine the level of academic adaptation of JEP in schools under study; and determine if there is significant effect of IEP on academic adaptation on learners with disabilities. The researcher used questionnaire to collect the data. The question had two parts. Part A collected information for the IV, individualized educational program and part B collected information for the DV, academic adaptation of disabled learners. The study findings revealed that there is a significant positive relationship between the level of individualized education program and the extent of academic adaption of disabled learners in Ikutha, district kitui county Kenya. For example, level of individualized education program is significantly correlated with the extent of academic adaption of disabled learners. The results further suggested that individualized education program directly affect academic adaption of disabled learners Ikutha, district kitui county Kenya. These findings thus showed that many teachers agreed that IEP is good and needs to be strongly applied in the teaching of children with disabilities since they cannot be taught the way they teach the other children. The adoption of IEP in schools will therefore help to improve the performance of children with disabilities in schools. The study that implementation of I.E.P approach in teaching disabled learners is not done by many teachers because they have no skills. The researcher environment for trainng of more SNE teachers, curriculum be adapted to suit the divert needs of disabled learners. The teachers who are not SNE compliant should be taken for refresher course on SNE.
