Some characteristics in the individuals break down the standard of normality which is social defined. This way, those individuals need the investment to develop their potentials and others ones to complement their difficulties. There is still the possibility of the double condition in one individual. So, the general aim of this research is to verify the indicators of high ability/giftedness in adults with blind disability by the application of the instrument of identification. The specific aims are to analyse the participants' academic course, and to verify the existence of the inclusive process during their academic lives. For that, this qualitative and double case study will use two instruments, a questionnaire to characterize the participants and other one to identify the indicators of high ability/giftedness.
