The purpose of this study was to investigate the number of enrolled students with learning deficits, their ages, and the most common types of deficits in 22 regular schools (both private and public) in Porto Velho (Rondônia). Field diaries and documental analysis were used as data sources. A total of 104 students, ranging in age from 5 to 25 years, with deficits were enrolled in the regular educational system, all lagging behind in school. The most common diagnosed problems amongst these students were intellectual deficit and hyperactivity. The enrollment of deaf students in regular classrooms appeared to have a low incidence. The results showed that parents and schools seek to enroll students with deficits in regular schools.
