Reasonable Accomodation for Deaf/Hard of Hearing Children in Uganda’s Education System

Despite the progress made in the education sector, it is still not all inclusive and discriminates against children with disabilities (CWDs) Рparticularly the deaf / hard of hearing. The enrollment levels of deaf children is still very low, their quality of education under the UPE and USE  schemes remains very poor and is characterized by high dropout and failure rates. This is despite the fact that the Disability Act of 2006 under Section 5 states that government shall promote the educational development of persons with disabilities, and one of the policy objectives of providing UPE is to make basic education equitable, accessible and relevant to the nation.
