This study was carried out to investigate the scope of assistive technology in learning process of students with blindness. The sample of this study included 56 students with blindness between the ages of 11-22 years from secondary level of education. These students were selected through convenient sampling from five special schools located in four cities of province of Sindh, Pakistan including; Karachi, Hyderabad, Larkana, and Nawabshah. The study was conducted with the help of a structured questionnaire. The hypotheses of the study were tested through percentage and Chi-Square method. The results of the study revealed that, majority of the special education schools/institutes were not providing sufficient assistive technology for students with blindness and the schools did not have sufficient accessibility of assistive technology for students. There was a lack of awareness among students with blindness regarding importance of assistive technology. It is expected that this study will help in creating awareness among students with blindness about the importance of assistive technology in learning process. The study will enable the school administrators to arrange assistive technology in their schools.
