|Abstract:||Inclusive Education is implemented by few schools in Ethiopia particularly in Addis Ababa. However, their implementation modality, and the facilities available within the schools do not serve and encompass the intended students. This study tries to assess whether the Inclusive Education is serving and applied to the benefit of the hearing impaired students, particularly in the two Primary Schools namely Yekatit 23 Special Primary School and Mekanissa School for the Deaf in Addis Ababa. It is a case study that incorporates four hearing impaired students of the two schools and find out the recognition of Inclusive Education by the school community and the Hearing Impaired students, strategies and interventions applied, school facilities available and the teaching methodology applied in the teaching learning process of both schools. The study has found that, the recognition and gradual acceptance of Inclusive Education by the school community, partners and other stakeholders positively contributes to the proper implementation of Inclusive Education to the benefit of the hearing impaired students. This attitudinal change of the hearing impaired students has also boosted the moral of hearing impaired student and enables them to participate in their school activity. However, the available school facilities and the overall school performance in executing the Inclusive Education need extra effort. Therefore based on the findings the rights of hearing impaired students to learn and to be benefited from the Inclusive Education should be strengthened through conducting the get together activities and campaigning the awareness creating program with the help of public mass Medias and religious leaders input. Schools which are implementing the Inclusive Education should form consortium and collaborate with funding institutions that are working on disability initiatives.|
