The central problem of the study was born out of the fact that despite epilepsy being a disease like others and that an epileptic child may have normal intelligence, many teachers and society know little or nothing about it and therefore have negative attitude towards these children

Factors leading to negative perception and discrimination of epileptic children have not been fully investigated and understood. The purpose of this study was therefore out the teachers' understanding of epilepsy in inclusive schools. The study was done in selected primary schools in the area and covered a sample of 25 teachers, both ale and female from five schools. The researcher sampled schools using convenient sampling technique. Data was collected by means of questionnaires and was analyzed usingdescriptive statistics in form of tables.  From the findings of the study it revealed that most schools do not have any specially trained teachers to handle children with special educational needs, some teachers still have negative attitude towards epileptic children, no remedial classes to help these children cover the tie lost during attacks and sometimes hospitalization and limited funds allocated to special needs
departments in regular schools which are moreover diverted to other uses among other challenges.
