Several studies have brought out the empirical evidence about the importance of Inclusive education and how it is implemented in primary and Secondary Schools. However, the implementation of inclusive education in Higher learning institutions remains unexplored, therefore, the study investigated the implementation of inclusive education at Higher learning institution at Kwame Nkrumah University. The study found that both disabled and non-disabled students and the institution benefit from the inclusive education system Educating the children with disabilities with the non-disabled children creates an atmosphere of understanding and tolerance that prepares the students of all abilities to the function in a world beyond school. Challenges in the implementation of inclusive education include poor inclusive education policy implementation, poor support from the administration and lack of special education knowledge to some students and lecturers which results into negative behaviours towards students with disabilities. The study recommend that every lecturer needs to be skilled and trained in responding to special education learner demands.
