This research investigated into the problems affecting learners with hearing impairment in an inclusive system. The government of Kenya introduced a policy of education for all. This benefits only learners in the main stream. Learners with hearing impairment are disadvantaged. Their interests are not looked into in terms of educational resource, infrastructures, health etc. the researcher’s major concern is that learners who are challenged should Pot be discriminated upon more so those with hearing impairment who are dominant within the researcher’s environment. The researcher had to carry out this research targeting learners and parents of the disabled, using interview, observation and questionnaire to come up with the thesis. There was random selection which was descriptive. The major finding is that up to now parents still hide their children with special needs. The researcher came across an incident where a parent did not know what to do because the child had both sexes.
