Persons with disabilities need guidance and counseling to enable them to be productive participants in society. However, such counseling must be broadly planned and organized to cater for the varied interests of all involved. To achieve this, a baseline data for developing a comprehensive guidance and counseling programme for Kenyan students with special needs was sourced in a larger study (Wamocho, 2003), in which Shostrom’s (1987) personal orientation inventory was used to measure the needs of 229 Kenyan students with visual, hearing and physical impairments. The findings pointed to issues and themes and resources needed for developing such a comprehensive guidance and counseling programme. The result guided our vision in the proposed framework of Guidance and Counselling programme for students in special Education Institutions in Kenya.
