Currently in Spain there is a paradigm shift related to special educational needs. There has been a movement from a deficit model, which involves people carrying “special educational needs”, to a social model of disability, in which disabled people have the rights that allow them access to education, work and social insertion, with the same opportunities as any other person without disability.

Carlos is a blind Special Education teacher. He uses new technologies in classrooms for those students with special educational needs arising from different causes: immigration, learning disabilities, etc.

The purpose of the present study is to show that it is not the Law that makes inclusion possible, but those teachers in the classroom, where “know what” and “know how” are daily put together with the desire to do it possible. We describe the way in which teacher’s disability meets the students´ needs, and how he uses new technologies to provide the most appropriate response and make inclusion easier. This paper presentation is accompanied by a video where the teacher can be seen in his school and other different situations.
