This paper assessed the challenges in entrepreneurship development for the disabled in Primary Schools in Enugu and implications for development in Enugu State, Nigeria. Man has always struggled to survive from birth and at maturity, the need for independence arises. Independence is usually sustained and attained by training and education in areas of knowledge and skills acquisition. Unemployment has made it imperative that most people become self employed by going into entrepreneurship which is relevant for wealth creation or profit making. So the acquisition of skills encourages employability either governmental or private with a view to generate wealth which has implications for development. Entrepreneurship development provides students with the knowledge, skills and motivation to attain entrepreneurial successes in different settings. The disabled are disadvantaged by virtue of their disabilities. They have learning difficulties and are challenged by the normal school activities. The teaching and learning situations also provide other challenges. Hence there are abilities in disabilities, entrepreneurial qualities can be developed and maintained by offering the disabled educational opportunities in that direction. This study adopted a survey research design. This study covered all the Primary Schools in Enugu education Zone. This Education Zone has both rural and urban populations. The instrument was designed on a four point scale-very high extent 4, high extent 3, low extent 2, and very low extent 1. The items were structured to elicit information in the areas of inclusive education, teaching environments, facilities available and training and retraining of teachers. Data analysis was based on means and recommendations were based on the findings.
