Education of Students with Visual Impairments in Kenya: Trends and Issues
Kiarie, Mary W.
International Journal of Special Education, v19 n2 p16-22 2004
Until the nineteen hundreds, people with disabilities did not receive formal educational services in Kenya. This paper discusses available educational services for individuals with visual impairments in terms of their forms, materials provided, and educational placements. Areas of most progress are discussed along with obstacles that stand in the way of efficient services for this population. This paper contributes to the rather scarce literature on educational services for students with disabilities in developing countries.
