SANCHEZ, Soraya. The social construction of learning disabilities across educational practices. Rev. bras. educ. espec. [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.3, pp.347-364. ISSN 1413-6538.

According to the systems of classification in human cultures, the social construction of categories and the transactional conception that we assume in comprehending Learning Disabilities, we understand that these are not an objective fact, but rather a cultural construct, interpreted and explained by a community in a specific educational, sociocultural and historical context determined by the discursive practice of learning disability.

Keywords : social construction; learning disabilities; category; discursive practices; special education.
