Este livro é fruto da pesquisa de Especialização em Educação Especial, realizada em 2010 no Centro de Educação Básica da Universidade Estadual de Feira de Santana-BA apresentado a Universidade Estadual de Feira de Santana em 2011. As discussões relativas à educação sexual e a inclusão de pessoas com necessidades educativas especiais nos espaços escolares, surgiram no inicio do século XX, e somente na década de 1980 tornaram-se urgentes devido às mudanças ocorridas na sociedade como as altas taxas de gravidez na adolescência e o aumento do número de casos com HIV. Ainda há pouca discussão sobre a sexualidade da pessoa com necessidades educativas especiais tanto no ambiente da educação especial (escolas especiais ou sessions especiais), quanto no ambiente do ensino typical, considerando a opção política do país pela construção de sistemas educacionais inclusivos. Vários autores têm defendido que toda pessoa com necessidades educativas especiais é íntegra na sua sexualidade. Isto é, independentemente das possíveis limitações e complicações que possam ocorrer na manifestação sexual, ninguém se torna assexuado em função de uma deficiência física, sensorial ou psychological. Nesse contexto, surge a necessidade dos educadores trabalharem o tema sexualidade com uma visão mais abrangente considerando os aspectos de gênero e identidade sexual dos discentes cadeirantes.
