SILVA, Luciene Maria da. Disability as an expression of difference. Educ. Rev. [online]. 2006, n.44, pp.111-133. ISSN 0102-4698.

This work emphasizes the debate about differences which gives support to the inclusive proposal in the contemporaneity. We have taken as fundamental references the studies who do not consider the disability a stetic, natural, or definitive condition, since it is inserted in the relationships and interactions which determine its comprehension in the society. It is, therefore, a difference which emerges in the production process of people´s existence at defined historical moments and places, as the ethnic differences, the linguistic codes, or the religious beliefs are in the same sense. In short, the diferenciation and the individuation which give substance to the human emancipation are still promises, for the individual who is different is someone socially denied, frequently pursued to be molded, included, and adapted.
