A simple random sampling technique was employed to select participants for the study. Data were subjected to frequency count involving simple percentages technique by using themes and comments from the questionnaire. Also, observation was done, and data from the observations were used in arriving at the findings. The study revealed that majority of the teachers in the school hold first degree certificate. In addition, equipment and materials are not adequate for teachers to use. The study also found that majority of the teachers indicated that time allocated for the various subjects are inadequate. Based on the findings of the study, the following recommendations are made: People who aspire to teach in special schools must be trained in sign language interpretation and special education. Periodic seminars, workshops and in-service training should be organized for teachers in special schools to update them on current developments in special education, especially things pertaining to education of the hearing impaired.0020 The Ministry of Education should supply hearing impaired and special schools with adequate teaching and learning materials to help in the academic, psychological, social and emotional development of these students. Circuit supervisors and heads of departments should carry out more intensive supervision exercises to keep teachers of the hearing impaired and other students with disability on their toes
