The present study is designed to understand the adjustment of visually impaired students, attending the special and the integrated schools. This study has been conducted on 60 visually impaired students, aged 14-16 years, attending special and the integrated setup of Varanasi city, UP, India. The method of survey has been used to elicit the information about their adjustment in the home area, school area and personal area in special and integrated set-up. Data were collected by using the adjustment scale developed and standardized by the investigator. Results indicate that there was a significant difference in the adjustment of the visually impaired students in the area of home, school and personal in special and integrated set-up.. Parents should have knowledge of school environment and facilities before getting their wards admitted to schools. Administrators should appoint well-qualified staff. Teachers should provide congenial environment and equal opportunities to all students for exploration.
