NUNES, Leila Regina d'Oliveira de Paula; BRAUN, Patrícia  and  WALTER, Cátia Crivelenti de Figueiredo. Teaching procedures and resources for students with disabilities: what has been presented by anped special education work group on these subjects?. Rev. bras. educ. espec. [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.spe1, pp.23-40. ISSN 1413-6538.

The purpose of this paper was to analyze 37 papers regarding teaching procedures and resources designed for students with special needs presented at ANPEd Special Education Work Group, during the 1996-2000 period. These articles represent 17% of the 216 papers presented in the last 15 annual ANPEd meetings. Vygotsky social historical perspective served as the theoretical basis for the majority of the studies, especially those concerning education for the deaf. Students with intellectual disabilities were the target population of most studies, followed by students with deafness, mainly during the 1996-2000 period; papers about physical, visual and multiple disabilities were less frequent. Descriptive studies, focusing on qualitative data, involving both case and ethnographic investigations constitute the majority of the articles. Experimental studies included group design as well as single subject designs. The articles were eloquent in both showing the need for teachers to pay more attention to the learning process than to the product of learning and in emphasizing the critical role of mediation. The development process of students with disabilities does not occur in the same way as their typically developing peers. This occurs mainly because of the lack of learning opportunities given to students with special needs, rather than the disabling condition.
