OLIVEIRA, Cassia Carolina Braz de  y  MANZINI, Eduardo José. Referral and Profile of The Special Education Target Audience in a Multifunctional Resources Classroom: a Case Study. Rev. bras. educ. espec. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.4, pp.559-576. ISSN 1980-5470.

The definition of the Special Education target-audience is described in the law. However, in the course of action many students were excluded from the service because they were not contemplated in this definition, therefore raising some questions: are these students receiving any service? Even not included by the law, are they served in the Multifunctional Resources Classrooms (MRC)? In this context, the proposed objectives were: to point out the reasons for referring students to the MRC, and to identify the students attending the MRC. The research methodology was based on the case study of a MRC. The participants were the special teacher and the coordinator of the school. Data collection was carried out through semi-structured interviews, documents of the students attending the MRC and observation protocols. Information treatment was based on data triangulation. The results showed that four students attending the Special Educational Service in the MRC had intellectual disabilities, four students were denominated as with special educational needs, and thus diagnosis was not necessary for enrollment. The reasons for referral were mostly based on the student's achievement in the general classroom and whether the student was literate or not. Other reasons, such as the presence of a disability and the parents' request for assessment were also identified. We concluded that the locus of the research had a diverse structure from what the law defines in relation to the students considered target-audience for Special Education.
