Abstract


The main aim of the study was to analyze the extent to which teachers were incorporating Individual Education Program (IEP) in teaching science subjects. The study was guided by Felder Silverman Dimension Model theory to science learning. Descriptive Case study design was used. The study was conducted at Rev. Muhoro Secondary School for the Deaf inMukurwe-ini Sub-County, Nyeri County, Kenya. The target population of study comprised of; Principal, teachers and students of Rev. Muhoro Secondary School for the Deaf. The Principal, teachers who took part in the study were sampled purposively while students were sampled along stratus. The sample size of the study involved one principal, seven science teachers and forty eight students. Data collection was done by use of questionnaires, interview and lesson observation. It was then analyzed both qualitatively and quantitatively. The study revealed that, even though most teachers maintained high academic aspirations in class many of them had little understanding on the planning and implementation of IEP in class. It was therefore commended that, there was need for re-training of teachers on how to plan and use IEP in class. It was further stressed that, only teachers who had trained in Special Needs Education recruited to teach in schools for the deaf and that inspectorate services should be enhanced to ensure that teachers were using IEP in their teaching.
