To Establish Factors That Hinder Development Of Educational Programmes For The Mentally Handicapped In Kayole Zone- Nairobi A Special Study Paper

Abstract

This study took cognizance of the fact that the development of educational

programmes for the mentally handicapped have been hindered by several

factors. Awareness creation among the various stakeholders on these problems

would lead to the solutions with the aim of finally improving on these

programmes. The survey research method was used with three different

questionnaires as the tools for quantitative data collection. The number of

participants (respondents) were thirty out of which fifteen were special education

teachers, fourteen parents of the mentally handicapped children in Mwangaza

and Unity primary schools with special units and one Education Assessment

Resource Center (EARC) co-ordinator. The major research findings were that

there were only two units for the mentally handicapped in Kayole Zone. The

level of awareness about mentally handicapped by the community was found to

be still very low and facilities were not adequate. The research also revealed

that the need for training more special education teachers was necessary. The

core recommendations included the need to establish more special education

programmes and more awareness campaigns.
