Monica de Carvalho Magalhães Kassar, Andressa dos Santos Rebelo, Gilberta Sampaio de Martino Jannuzzi


This article analyses the formulation of Special Education as a national public education policy. For the research, we conduct an interview with the first director-general of National Special Educational Center and analyzed international reports, technical reports, legislation and studies produced at the request of the Ministry of Education, considering the movement of the context, in order to identify their philosophical and ideological characteristics. Historical delimitation is defined from the late 1950s to the mid-1980s. The particularities of the policy, including how people with disabilities are recognized as students, are analyzed.
