The objective was to develop computerized teaching strategies which foster the learning of children with disabilities in special classes through the process of training teachers for this purpose. As a research problem arose the question: How to transform the teaching of a computer room dedicated to serving people with disabilities? To identify the practices of the teacher in the computer room before the stage of intervention was developed and implemented an initial questionnaire, immediately after the intervention was administered a questionnaire to determine the final outcomes after this step. Data collection for the entire intervention process was described in a diary, which was completed in the ending of each stage of intervention. The digital literacy of the teacher was important for the new feature available in the school favored the formation of its students with a teaching practice consistent with current reality. However the computer room was only used when the researcher was present at the school. For the teacher the research contributed to her teaching practice because she did not know before how to use the computer resources as a teaching resource. Other relevant data is the scarcity of time and lack of organization of school hours for use of the school environment.
