Special Education Opportunities in Kenya

There are a total of 97 institutions in Kenya that provide specialized education. The ministry of Education through Kenya Integrated Education Program is encouraging integrating children with disabilities into ordinary school rather than having special schools for them. This way they can interact with other children and those without disabilities can learn to accept them.

The cubicle floors should be made of dry soil, testinside HH0-240 as cattle prefer to lie on soil rather than on cold concrete. The cubicle floors should be higher than the concrete floor of the walking area and should slope slightly toward the concrete. The cubicles should be just large enough HH0-240 exam

I don't think it's a good idea to include children with disabilities in ordinary school, in fact I think it's outrageous. I can't think about any good reason for doing that. Children with disabilities usually have trouble staying focused or they have mobility problems, they would only be exposed to an environment that may harm them.

Karen Technical Training Institute for the Deaf (one of the 4 vocational/technical colleges mentioned in this website) is .situated along Karen Road off Ngong Road and Lang'ata Road' It was started in 1990 through Kenya Society for Deaf Children which constructed the buildings before handing them over to the government of Kenya. It offers the following courses in sign language to the hearing impared not just from Kenya but other African countries:

Food and Beverage at Artisan, Craft and Diploma levels
Clothing and Textile Technology " " "
Agriculture " " "
Catering and Accommodation "
House-keepind "
ICT "
Carpentry and Joinary, Electrical Installation, Masonry, Hair and Beauty, Knitting and motor vehicle mechanic are currently offered up to craft level but plans are under way to upgrade these to Diploma level. We hope to be able to offer these courses at degree level in future as our students have nowhere else to go for further studies in the region. No university in the East African Region offers skills in sign language. We have Kenyatta University and KISE which offer degree and Diploma in sign language.

More details can be obtained by the email address given above.
