  • Introduction

    The work is part of the research on the process of inclusion of young people with intellectual disabilities. So, this article discusses, within the scope of Special Education, the professional inclusion of people with intellectual disability, based on the analysis of Brazilian legislation referring to training and insertion of these subjects in work. It presents data obtained in a research that analyzed the implementation of a specialized program, based on the “customized work” model with four young students with intellectual disability of professional courses of a specialized school who were interns at the School of Education of State University of Rio de Janeiro - UERJ. This concept is based on the training process of the future worker as well as on the creation and/or adaptation of work posts in companies and other institutions, adjusting the employers’ demands with the subjects’ disabilities. The methodology used was the action-research, involving the field evaluation, training and monitoring the subjects in their work activities. The obtained data show that the customization of the work allowed good performance and production from the trainees, contributing for their social inclusion in their work environment, decreasing the attitude barriers and prejudice. It opens, therefore, a fertile field of actions of Special Education services.
    Specific areas of accounting practices including the relevance of financial inclusion, reporting practices, forensic accounting, green accounting, corporate governance, banking techniques, corporate innovation, among others are strategic in the developmental process.
