Abstract

The study sought to examine curriculum provisions for children with special educational needs in mainstream schools in Bulawayo Metropolitan. Data were collected using the Likert scale questionnaire design. A total of ten teachers and ten school heads participated in the study. Major findings show that teachers in the mainstream primary school sector find it difficult to manage classes with learners who have diverse special learning needs. The study further revealed that infrastructure in the schools is not user friendly to learners with disabilities. The study also recommended that all schools modify the existing infrastructure so that it becomes accessible to learners with disabilities. The study further recommends the in servicing of regular teachers in the mainstream schools on the management of classes of learners with diverse special learning needs.
