MENDES, Enicéia Gonçalves; NUNES, Leila Regina D’Oliveira de Paula; FERREIRA, Julio Romero  e  SILVEIRA, Lígia Cardoso. The state of the art on professionalization of persons with special needs. Temas psicol. [online]. 2004, vol.12, n.2, pp.105-118. ISSN 1413-389X.

The present work was a critical study on students of graduate programs on Education and Psychology’s production under the issue "professionalization of people with disabilities", until 1999. Of 479 theses and doctoral dissertation revealed, 18 of these studies focused on the subject matter. These studies were analysed according to the place where they were conducted, the target population, the methodology adopted, the kind of literature review, theoretical foundations, and the conceptions of authors about deficiency. Evidence suggests that a critical point in the area is the poor quality of vocational training programs, and its detachment from the competitive labour market. Due to methodological problems found in the studies the present authors recommend more caution on the choice of subjects. In the whole, there is a tendency to descriptive studies and to studies that focus on given levels of mental disabilities revealing the need to implement research on all type of disabilities and to do research with new methodological approaches focusing on the evaluation of educational programs on regular environments and with the support the social inclusion.
