FERRARI, Marian A. L. Dias  e  SEKKEL, Marie Claire. Inclusive education at higher education: a new challenge. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.4, pp. 636-647. ISSN 1414-9893.

The growing admission of students with intellectual disability in the regular classes at colleges and universities requires a deeper thought about inclusive education. This article aims to discuss the challenges that this new perspective provides in education, especially in the Brazilian higher education system, such as the purposes and the eligibility of their careers. The history of the University is briefly recovered and its main distinguishing marks, as well as its consequences at the Brazilian higher educational institutions. This article analyzes the inclusive education project at both national and international scenarios and identifies three levels of challenges in this field: the clearness of the institution's purposes and its degrees and who would be the ones eligible for those; the need of increasing our teacher's education so that they can be educated to take the differences into account and, at last, an openness to recognize and discuss the differences together with the students as well as create strategies to overwhelm all difficulties that may appear during the educational process.
