ABSTRACT There is a strong correlation between poverty and handicap where over 80% of the 600 million handicapped people in the world live below poverty line without essential services. Yet, as nations strive to achieve the millennium development goals, it is imperative to factor the handicapped population in poverty alleviation and development. This study investigated discipline and academic impacts of combining handicapped and normal learners in primary schools with reference to Kibwezi district, eastern province, Kenya. The study revealed that the common form of disability in Kibwezi district Mi-I where 60% of the respondents were affected. Also 15% of the parents of mentally handicapped learners in the division are resource poor. Over 80% of the parents with M.H felt that their children were not in best school and if they were, resource-rich, they would transfer them to better schools. Thirty percent of the parents with M.H are discriminated against the by society while 70% of the teachers trained in SNE had a positive attitude towards M.H. thus immobility and how acceptability by peers are the major constraints faced by M.H and their parents in the district. Lack of training in special needs education (SNE) I the main challenge faced by teachers in Kibwezi while handling M.H. teacher’s training in SNE and community sensitization are the most appropriate measures for mitigating the M.H challenges. Thirty percent of the teachers, however, suggested the use of the government intervention in addressing the challenges particularly, teachers and parents of M.H suggested to be trained in guidance and counseling, modification of learning environment, administering physical exercises and classroom teaching.
