ABSTRACT
Disciplinary problems among students is a universal problem in education settings throughout the world. We seem to relate disciplinary problems with the influence of modernization such as the advancement of technologies, changing of life style and culture and we also relate it to students not abiding by religious teaching and values. Discussions in the society regarding disciplinary problems are often associated towards those 'normal' students and seldom are we aware that handicapped children could also create disciplinary and social problems and so forth. With this perspective in mind, this paper aims to investigate disciplinary problems among students with sensory impairments. This study focuses on these aspects of disciplinary problems; criminal behaviors, indecent acts, vandalistic behaviors, dishonest acts, and appearance. The samples of the study comprises of 20 students with hearing impairments and 28 students with visual impairments. The students are from form 4 that is of the age of 16 years old for both samples. Findings in this study reveal that students with visual impairments have more disciplinary problems compared to hearing impairments students. Finally, the paper discusses the implications of such a result.
