ABSTRACT

This descriptive and quantitative study was conducted in Marmanet zone,

Nyahuru district, to investigate the prevalence of and the problems which the

childen suffering from behavioral disorders were facing at school. The variables

measured include; the existence of such pupils in inclusive schools, the

challenges which they face and the problems they cause to other pupils as well

as their teachers, and how the schools have intervened for them. The study

utilized a semi-structured questionnaire to collect responses from primary

schools in Marmanet zone that were randomly selected from the universal

population. Findings show that the pupils with behavioral problems were

indeed learning together with the rest of the pupils in class, although they were

not many. They behave in the following ways; they were aggressive. Short

tempered, some were shy, and reserved. This of course has negatively impacted

on their academic performance. It was recommended that teachers should

provide individual attention to the pupil's academic needs in order to get past

some difficult hurdle. They must be alert to determine to provide this

assistance. Also teachers are also advised to communicate clear expectations for behavior. When these pupils display behavioral problems, it is very important to specify exactly which behaviors are acceptable and unacceptable

in precise and concrete terms. For example provide what pupils can speak in class, when they should move around in class. Children are more likely to behave appropriately in class when they are given reasonable instructions for their behavior.
