Abstract

This paper aims to bring research findings on the curric- ular teacher’s and curricular support teacher’s attitude toward students with intellectual disabilities. The results bring to imagine possible changes in the current training system that, deepening in- tellectual disability in discipline and laboratory terms, not neces- sarily and intentionally get a suitable space to evaluate and work on initial placements. The exercise of reflective competence, neces- sary to feed a mature self-awareness, is also essential to withstand the possible involutions experienced in school contexts, still far from the inclusive dimension.
