Abstract: This study seeks to investigate the challenges faced by Lean1ers with disabilities in inclusive settings in Ndarawetta Zone B01net Central Division - Kenya. The following objectives guided the study; Assess the quality of teachers who teach LDs in an inclusive setting; to establish if any effort has been made by educators, to identify the categories of learners with LD in order to offer them appropriate support; to ascertain socio-economic challenges the LDs are facing in inclusive educational settings; to establish if the same children have other concurrent disorders; to assess the interventions which teachers have adopted by teachers and how they fell towards these pupils in class. Respondents were selected randomly quantitative and qualitative methods were used to collect data. Findings showed that that have few teachers in inclusive primary schools are unable to effectively teach pupils with learning disabilities. It appears that teachers do not have the specialized skills to teach the diverse learners. Secondly all teachers were in agreement that some of the learning disabled pupils faced a challenge of discrimination. Conclusions and recommendations were made. Government should continue to provide special incentives for increased retention of girls in primary schools.
