BRITO, Jessica de; CAMPOS, Juliane Aparecida de Paula Perez  y  ROMANATTO, Mauro Carlos. Teaching mathmatics to students with intellectual disability in youth and adult education. Rev. bras. educ. espec. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.4, pp.525-540. ISSN 1413-6538.

The inclusion of young people and adults with intellectual disabilities in Youth and Adult Education (EJA) represents both a breakthrough and a challenge in the teaching- learning process. When addressing curriculum adaptation for teaching mathematics to this age group, the construction of new educational possibilities are underway. This study aimed to understand the practices of EJA teachers for teaching mathematics to young people and adult students with intellectual disabilities, in order to intervene with teachers by suggesting possible strategies that could be adopted. A qualitative approach with a focus on intervention research was used. The study was conducted in an EJA classroom, and the participants were a teacher and five students, two of whom presented intellectual disabilities. Observations in the classroom were carried out and interventions consisted of applying differentiated activities that focused on teaching this knowledge. The study showed that strategies such as games can effectively assist in the acquisition of mathematical concepts. Thus, we hope that this study will instigate researchers in the fields of Mathematics Education and Special Education Spotlight to reflect on the need for differentiated and collaborative work in teaching mathematical content to such a student group.
