ABSTRACT

The research carried out was on the problems encountered by physically handicapped children of St. Joseph Primary School in Egoji Division, Meru Central District, Kenya. The researcher who is more knowledgeable on the problems of physically handicapped children failed to understand why the number of physically children in school is few in comparison with the normal children, hence the researcher wanted to investigate the problems encountered and address the problem.

The researcher used her own devised instrument which was a questionnaire. On the criteria of strongly Agree, Agree, Disagree, Strongly disagree. The frequencies and percentages were used to determine the analysis and interpretation of the data. The field research is the source of the data found, that poor attitude from parents and community in general, mobility devices as a problem, educational resources, school environments are the major problems encountered by the physically handicapped children which hinders their smooth learning process.
