Abstract

Introduction: The inclusive development of visual disable population is becoming a global concern. Visually disabled people are excluded from the main stream and faced different problems in the society, such as lack of mobility, lack of access, infrastructure limitation, stream limitation, etc. Education can improve opportunities and participation of people with visual disability in the society. Aim: To explore the problems of visually disabled students in the context of education and identify the problems faced in availing services for visually disabled students. Research design: An exploratory study Sampling and method: Both purposive and snowball sampling technique was used. About 53 visually disable students of school, colleges and Panjab University were interviewed from 1st August 2018 to 31st January 2019 in Chandigarh. Finding: There were 53 visually disable students (31 males and 22 females) who belonged to age from 13 to 24 years. Approx. 42 visually disable students were availing available government schemes and facilities. Around 28 visually disable students faced stigma overtly and covertly in the society. They were facing different problems like inadequate infrastructure, stream limitation, and insufficient materials and so on. Conclusion: There is a need to adopt comprehensive approach for resolving the issues of visually impaired students.
