ABSTRACT

The central problem of this study is that despite the fact that epilepsy is a disease

like any other and that an epileptic has normal intelligence, teachers and the

society know little or nothing about it and have negative perception towards this

problem.

Factors leading to negative perception and discrimination have not been fully

investigated and understood. The purpose of this study was to find out the teachers

knowledge of epilepsy in an inclusive setting.

This was clone in selected primary regular schools in Dagoretti, Nairobi province.

The sample of the study was 25 teachers from 5 schools male and female teachers

were given equal opportunities. The study sampled schools using convenient

sampling techniques. Data was collected using que~Lionnaires Data collected was

analyzed using descriptive statistics.

From the findings most school don’t have any special needs teachers. Some special

needs teachers have not changed their negative perception on these learner

remedial classes to cover time lost during attacks and hospitalization. Majority of

regular teachers have not trained in special education. Funds allocated to special

needs in regular schools are diverted to other uses.

Based on the findings it is recommended that every regular school should at least have one special needs teacher. Offer seminars and in-service courses to the special needs teachers. Train more teachers in special needs. Allocate more funds in special education needs. Create awareness through seminars, workshops, chief barazas, churches and the media. Teachers should be motivated to concentrate on assisting the special needs learners rather than focusing on the negative impact of their epilepsy or disability.
