Specialized educational support is offered in the Multifunctional Resources rooms, which aim to ensure the educational process of children with special needs. Thus, some questions were raised: What is the formation profile of the teachers who work in specialized education? What policy guidelines and continuing education programs the government of Goiás has been offering? What are the courses offered by the Catalão Regional Under-secretariat for Education? How collaborative research can contribute to the professional development of special education teachers? The objective of this research was to investigate the formation processes of teachers in Goiás, from 1999 to 2012. For this purpose, we used an identification sheet, to outline the teachers’ profile. There was a research on training courses promoted by the government of Goias, a research on courses offered by the Catalão Regional Under-secretariat for Education, as well as an analysis of the certificates of the courses that the teachers have done. In the interview, we used a semi-structured script for trigger questions. The research was conducted at the Federal University of Goiás, Campus Catalão, with monthly meetings. The data collected by document analysis showed that, in Goiás, Higher education is required to work in the Multifunctional Resources rooms, however, this is not always a parameter to work with specialized educational support. In relation to training courses offered by the State Program for Diversity in Inclusive Perspective and courses of the Catalão Regional Under-secretariat for Education, research has shown that the proposal was based on a multiplier-based approach, with emphasis on deficiencies in preference to a more critical and reflective formation. The certificates showed that many teachers working have no training in the area. Regarding the interviews, they were analyzed from units of meaning and listed in three categories: The training processes of the teacher who works in specialized educational support; Constitution of Special Education teacher identity and Professional Development and Continuing Education and Collaborative Research. It was found that the initial formation was considered deficient and insufficient; the distance training program, implemented by the federal government, does not guarantee teachers access to public institutions of higher education. The devaluation of the profession has caused a distortion of the identity of special education teachers, because of the different roles they are taking at school. We found that collaborative research and continuing education in the perspective of professional development is a possibility that can significantly contribute to the improvement of their teaching practice.
