Scarcity of appropriate educational, scholastic and instructional materials for about 4,960,000 children living with disabilities, inadequate training staff handling concerns of People Living with Disabilities, outdated and limited skills in vocational rehabilitation centres, inaccessible physical structures at schools, high costs of assistive devices and assistive services such  as guides, helpers  as well as interpreters are major factors which hinder People Living with Disabilities education and skills training.

Therefore, poor access to education in childhood means that a high proportion of People Living with Disabilities remain illiterate and unskilled. Issues relating to People Living with Disabilities are not well highlighted in education and training curricula at all levels.

Furthermore, public education programmes often use languages and images that are not comprehensible to most People Living with Disabilities. Physical accessibility and affordability to programmes are major to education and skills training limitations that constrain participation of People Living with Disabilities.
