Melem Linda Fangwi "Parental Financial Commitment and its Effect on the Academic Achievement of Persons with Visual Impairment" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-2 | Issue-6, October 2018, pp.1031-1038, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd18826.pdf

Family financial resources, which are associated with parents’ occupation and educational attainment, often imply increased learning opportunities both at home and in school and often result to a greater student’s performance in school and their adjustment to life. This study examined the impact of parental financial commitment on the academic achievements of students with visual impairment in some selected residential schools in the North West region of Cameron. A sample of 50 pupils and 50 parents were purposively selected as participants in the study. Of this 50 pupils 44% (n=22) were males while 66% (n= 28) were females. A questionnaire was used to collect data from parents while a focus group discussion guide was used to collect data from the pupils. The principals of the two institutions were also interviewed using an interview guide. From the result obtained it was clear that parental financial commitments significantly influence the academic achievement of persons with visual impairment. It was therefore recommended that parents should identify resources available to the family and plan their finances to suit the needs of every family member knowing that the education of children with special needs entails a lot.
