Abstract [en]

Upon the introduction of the Universal primary education in 1997 by the government of Uganda, the idea of integrated education was put into practice. As of now, children with disabilities are accessing education through the mainstream schools though facing many challenges. However, our study has found out that CWDs are still facing many challenges in accessing special education in Uganda. This includes lack of good physical infrastructure, educational materials, easy access to classrooms, and other services.

                                     

In addition, teachers are not motivated to take care of the needs of CWDs, resulting in low morale. Corruption among officials within the system is yet another factor affecting special education provision for CWDs.

 

 The study was conducted through qualitative method with semi structured interview questions. In one of the districts in Uganda, four teachers in one primary school and four education officials in the same district were interviewed. The aim of this study was to find out the challenges facing children with disabilities, and the possibilities of providing special education to them.
