The specialized educational services offered to the target audience of Special Education students, happens through specialized support for multifunction resource rooms. The space of these rooms are equipped with numerous facilities, suitable teaching materials and resources, such as computing resources, lenses and magnifying glasses, Soroban, augmented alternative communication cards, slates, tailored educational games, and resources made by hand by teachers, among others. This arsenal of products, services, methodologies and strategies, known as Assistive Technology in the educational context, have the premise of enabling the public goal of educating special education alternatives that provide or enhance their functional abilities, communication, mobility, study or work ensuring educational advancement of these students, promoting independent living and inclusion. Thus, it is established as a general goal of this research: to understand how Assistive Technology has been used by specialized educational assistance teachers in helping public education of students in Special Education from the target multifunctions resources in southeast Goiás. To answer this question, this paper defined as complementary objectives: a) to analyze the understanding that specialized educational assistance teachers have on Assistive Technology; b) identify the different criteria used by the teachers in the implementation process of appeal Assistive Technology in educational activities, with regard to identifying the need presented by the student, feature selection, evaluation by the student on the use and monitoring of the same; c) check the limits and requirements related to the use of Assistive Technology that teachers in their educational activities.

All interviews were audio and video and its contents fully transcribed. This content was analyzed together with the participating teachers, themes that revolved around the concept of Assistive Technology, the process of implementation of Assistive Technology in the multifunction resources rooms have been established , beyond the limits and needs identified by teachers in the use of Assistive Technology. As research results, the data point to the need for teacher training focused on the use of Assistive Technology. This gap in training prevents teachers have mastery of features and characteristics of resources, avoiding to make an effective pedagogical work, ensuring the education of the public by educating target of Special Education.
