The usual course of physical education classes in which teachers need to develop strategies and select appropriate or adapted resources for the students to be able to carry out the activities in the classroom seems to be as tranquil when there are students with disabilities enrolled in regular classes. This research is aimed in a general plan, implement and evaluate an intervention program, also aiming to provide to the physical education teacher access to resources and strategies for Assistive Technology to collaborate for the educational inclusion of students with and without disabilities. And in a specific way, identify the main difficulties of these teachers, and develop together with them, plans of lesson that allow to integrate the resources and strategies of Assistive Technology. The methodological approach is based on studies that use the reflective and collaborative research for formation of the teacher. The participants will be teachers of Physical Education, that teach classes for students with disabilities enrolled in elementary education Cycle I (1st to 5th grade) the municipal public system in Marilia. The data collection will take place in four steps: 1) conducting a focus group to identify the main difficulties of teachers of Physical Education,, 2) the characterization of the context on Physical Education lessons to the class in which there is a student with disabilities, through filming and observations, 3) planning and executing theoretical lessons which will deal with issues that will supply the questions and needs of teachers of Physical Education, when working with a student with disabilities, and 4) conducting weekly meetings with the teacher of Physical Education for development of lesson plans which allow to integrate the resources and strategies of Assistive Technology.
