Abstract: The research topic is about challenges facing learners with physical impairment m academic performance in Kapenguria Zone, Kapenguria division West Pokot district. The purpose of the study was to determine the challenges faced by physically impaired learners in primary schools in Kapenguria Zone, Kapenguria division, west Pokot district. The research questions focused on attitude of both teachers and parents, environment of the schools, educational resources and challenges faced by physically impaired learners. From the findings of this study it showed that there was a significant negative attitude of both teachers and parents towards the education of the physically impaired. The hypothesis regarding the negative attitude towards the education of physically impaired learners remain unchanged. This is because there is limited number of qualified teachers to cater for the needs of physically impaired learners. The government should therefore train enough teacher in the area of physically impaired, organize seminars and workshops to disseminate information to schools and the community at large through pamphlets, radios, televisions and advocating positive education for the physically impaired learners. The government should also fund the schools so that the learning environment can be modified by buying adaptive and educational resources of the physically impaired learners, construct ramps and build special toilets of the physically impaired learners
