ABSTRACT

The purpose of the study is to determine Teaching Methods and

Academic Performance among Learners with Hearing Impairment in

Selected Schools in Magumoni zone, Magumoni Division,Meru-south

District Kenya. The specific objectives of the study were to; Determine

Teaching Methods and Academic Performance among Learners with

Hearing Impairment in regards to: Classroom seating, Sign Interpreters

and Note takers, Non-Verbal Communication, Hearing Materials and

Sign Language. The methods of data collection were questionnaires and

interviews. The study revealed by 50% of the respondents that seating

arrangements help learners with hearing impairment be comfortable as

they study and therefore understand what they are being taught. 47% of

the respondents agreed that note takers help children with hearing

impairment understand what they are being taught. However they

revealed that it was expensive. 57% of the respondents agreed that

nonverbal communication can help support their confidence with spoken

language. 72% of the respondents also agreed that hearing materials are

important for children with hearing impairment. 54% of the respondents

agreed that signs are important for children with hearing impairment.

the study recommended that School facilities should be provided in

schools so that children with hearing impairment understand what they

are taught and that teachers are able to teach effectively.

More teachers should be trained to get competent teachers who can

effectively use teaching methods that can help children with hearing

impairments understand what they are taught.

The school environment should be made conducive
