Abstract:Using interviews and questionnaires for head teachers, this study examines whether primary schools in Nyandarua District, Kenya, make any special educational provision in order to help gifted children learn, and identifies the challenges such children pose and face in primary education. It looks into the existence of educational programmes (special curricular materials geared to helping gifted children) for the academically gifted children in Kenyan primary schools; determines the teachers' views concerning educational provision for academically gifted children; and identifies any locally available resources (learning resources within the locality of the school) that could be utilized in educational provision for the academically gifted children in Kenyan primary schools.
