ABSTRACT: the present study aimed to investigate the meaning of the inclusion of people with special needs in the Physical Education classes of the regular teaching system. The sample had 67 participants, technical pedagogical assistants of Physical Education of the Education Board Districts of the State of São Paulo. Thirty participants were male, 57 studied in private colleges and 10 in public colleges, 29 had specialization course, 57 had more than 10 years of experience in the area of physical education, 5 had between 5 and 10 years of experience and 5 between 1 to 5 years, ages varying from 27 to 58. A semi-structured questionnaire, composed of 10 closed questions and 4 open questions, was used for data collecting. The results pointed out that about 97% of the participants did not have enough knowledge to include bearers of special needs in the Physical Education classes and that about 97% believed that the participation of a student with deficiency in the Physical Education classes would help the inclusion of that pupil in the school community. The results also indicated that to carry out inclusion, teachers would need: a) government support to offer training courses; b) specialized technical pedagogical support; c) structure adapted to the physical space; and d) adequate didactical material.

KEYWORDS: inclusive education, physical education; preparation of the physical education teacher; people with special needs; regular teaching.
