The specific objectives of the study were to assess the relevance of primary education currently offered to children with Visual impairment, to explore the disability specific challenges of children with Visual impairment; and to investigate the constraints to the provision of educational service for children with Visual impairment. The methods used for data collection was questionnaires and interview guides to pupils, teachers and head teachers of the schools involved in the study.
