Inclusive Design, saw as a project approach which has the objective to recognize the necessities of the largest public possible in the projects conception, is capable to guide designers on product and service elaboration, in order to make them more usable and useful for the vastest number of people that it s achievable, independently of age or ability. However, Brazilian designers have not adopted it very frequently. The problem found around this project approach lies in the market s scarcity of inclusive products. Therefore, Inclusive Design education s little diffusion in Design s graduation courses is believed to be its main reason. Thus, this research has the main objective to expose teaching and practicing of Inclusive Design in Brazil, in contrast to international experts experience in the area. Through a bibliographic review, it was possible to know and deepen the concept of Inclusive Design, as well as explore the relations between teaching and practicing of Design projects. Plus, through an exploratory interview and an online survey, it was possible to ensure if teachers of Brazilian Design graduation courses know, teach and employ Inclusive Design, as well as Brazilian Designers know and make use of it in their projects. In addition, a survey submitted to experts in the area permitted a comprehension of how project process is, concerning the use of this approach, and the teaching challenges experienced by them. Through the results, it was possible to notice that the greatest source of knowledge in this approach is the academic environment and Inclusive Design teaching is factual in many Design graduation courses; however, some counterpoints were notable about the way it has been learned and taught. As practicing is, in thesis, a reflection of what is learned, the applicability of Inclusive Design in design projects is not a common reality in Brazil yet.
