HEADTEACHERS of special needs schools have launched an association. The Special Schools Headteachers Association of Kenya chairman Arthur Injenga said special needs children should be integrated with other children. "We should not hide or put them in on the back burner because they are part of society.
Special needs children should be taken seriously because the constitution clearly talks about them," Injenga said. There are 200 fully fledged special needs schools and 500 special units in regular schools.
