In this study we examine school complaint from the perspective of Professional in Education when referring to the learning difficulties of students with intellectual disabilities who attend special schools (APAEs). We propose to investigate whether there is school complaints in these schools, and if so, what are the conceptions that permeate it, what are the causes attributed to this fact that intertwined in teaching such students. We interviewed 21 teachers from three special schools in the State of Paraná. The results show a naturalization process of learning difficulties, with the understanding that these students have disabilities and learning difficulties as inability to learn the scientific knowledge, disregarding the inadequacy of mediations, the poor quality of teaching and the network of relationships involved . Educators often base their views on a iological paradigm, reducing the development to a natural and innate process.
