In developing sub-Saharan Africa, a region, that is, in the early stages of implementing inclusive education, there is limited discussion on inclusive leadership modules for training leaders. The qualitative study presented in this paper attempted to fill this knowledge gap by considering school leaders’ contributions to implementing inclusive education for students with disabilities. The paper identifies the challenges faced by schools and the initiatives they have implemented to promote inclusive education. The paper concludes by presenting a proposed heuristic leadership model that could be used to train leaders in low-income contexts to enable them to create inclusive learning environments.
