BRAUN, Patricia  and  NUNES, Leila Regina d'Oliveira de Paula. Concept Formation in Students with Intellectual Disabilities: the Case of Ian. Rev. bras. educ. espec. [online]. 2015, vol.21, n.1, pp.75-92. ISSN 1980-5470.

This article presents part of a doctoral study with students who have learning disabilities, who were enrolled in a regular public school in Rio de Janeiro between the years 2009 and 2012. Collaborative action research and cultural-historical approach were the theoretical and methodological bases to investigate the development of both processes of teaching and learning and the formation of concepts by a student with intellectual disabilities. From episodes filmed in the classroom and in the resource room, the data collected and analyzed indicated possibilities of pedagogical action aimed at concept construction situations by students with intellectual disabilities. Furthermore, it was found that the theoretical-methodological approach was favorable to cooperative organization of educational activities by teachers in the classroom as well as in there source room, with the most suitable teaching procedures to ensure learning conditions for students with intellectual disabilities in regular school. This proposal is consistent with the perspective of quality education for all.
