The current study aims to analyze the adequation process of a Higher Education Federal Institution to law no. 13.409, of December 28th, 2016, which implements quotas for people with disabilities. It is a qualitative research of a single case. Two managers of the Institution were interviewed and researched documents related to the theme for our documental corpus were collected. For the documental analysis, the content analysis procedure was used. It was found that the analyzed institution does not have adequate conditions to meet the quota for people with disabilities established by the law. It is concluded that, even though law no. 13.409/2016 is fair and necessary, the conditions for its effectiveness by part of the federal government were not created. What should have been inclusion is, in fact, a process of exclusion.
