Abstract

The article analyses the criticality of inclusive education in ESL classrooms and sheds light on the learning mechanism of visually impaired ESL learners with special reference to status of inclusive education in India. It acquaints the educators with visual impairment and its related terms in order to sensitise them for implementing better teaching methods and strategies. The study highlights certain significant factors affecting the teaching of English to students with visual impairment and explores some specific teaching techniques and approaches that teachers adopt while teaching V.I students in an inclusive classroom. The paper will carry out a comparative analysis of the learning mechanisms of VI students and their peers without disability. In the end, it proposes some suggestive measures pertaining to the curriculum development, teaching methods and training programmes which are hoped to be productive in inclusive classrooms comprising of visually impaired ESL learners.
