OLIVEIRA, Ronaldo Queiroz de et al. Inclusion of People with Special Needs in Higher Education. Rev. bras. educ. espec. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.2, pp.299-314. ISSN 1980-5470.

it is an integrative review that aimed to analyze the scientific literature on inclusive education in higher education. Data was collected in the following databases: Lilacs, SciELO, Cochrane, Medline and PubMed, between the years 2005 and 2014, using the controlled descriptors Special Education, Higher Education, Education and Mainstreaming Disabled Person and uncontrolled descriptors Special Education, Higher Education, Educational Inclusion and Persons with Disabilities; Educación Superior, Propensíon Educación, Personas com Discapacidad. The sample consisted of 16 articles. The publications on inclusive education in higher education has been tenuous, demonstrating that there is still much to advance in this issue. We conclude that the issue of inclusive education is more studied in relation to children; and that the attention of scholars regarding adults with special needs involves mostly health care and not inclusive education in higher education.
