Abstract

The study, examining educational access and opportunity for special needs students, a case study of a school for special need Birnin Kebbi was necessitated by worrisome statistics that abound about the physically challenged and the researcher’s personal experiences that disabled people hardly find a voice or position in the society and if any, only few in a thousand or even in a million. The study was aimed at examining educational access available to special need students in school for special needs Birnin Kebbi, to identify the opportunity available for special need in school for special need Birnin Kebbi, and to determine the institutional readiness toward inclusive education as a major theme in a global campaign for education of the handicapped. Relevant literature related to the study was reviewed. Both a retrospective case study and a descriptive research design were employed for the study and data was collected through a structured checklist and questionnaire that took the researcher a week to have them completely collected. The data was analyzed and presented on tables, charts and percentages. Findings from the analyzed and presented data revealed that there are excellent opportunities for special need students or the handicapped in the labour market in the area of teaching, entrepreneurship and gainful employment as well as sports. However, their educational process in attaining this opportunity is faced with challenges of equipment, shortage of qualified teachers and lack of adequate sponsorship especially from NGOs and well to do individuals in the society. The researcher however recommended urgent employment of qualified teachers, adequate supply of teaching equipments as enshrined in the National Policy on Education (NPE), active participation of NGO and well to do individuals in funding of the school and sponsorship of students to encourage them in furthering their education. The researcher finally recommended that higher institutions in Nigeria  be prepared to receive more students with disabilities as the study revealed that more handicapped/special need are seeking for education as shown in the students enrollment from 2013 to 2017 in the school for special need Birnin Kebbi.

Key word - Education, access, opportunity, special needs, inclusive education, students.
