Abstract

The learning options for students with special needs in Malaysian educational system fall within three broad categories of special needs: visual impairments, hearing impairments and learning disabilities in special schools and integration programs in mainstream schools. A placement of students with visual impairment is mainly based on the visual impairments they are experiencing. However, it is found that there are also those who experience additional disabilities. This paper discusses the factors that contribute to these students experiencing additional disabilities and the complication related to that. The implication of these disabilities on the education of these students will be highlighted.
