Sensitization towards people with special needs and handicap has led the state to take measures for their social integration and the provision of equal opportunities and rights with their fellow citizens. Τhe right to education is also considered as a fundamental one. Every human being has got a right to education, to acceptance by society and coverage of his basic needs. The present research paper wishes to highlight the role school textbooks may play in the life of a human being in order to make him autonomous, while at the same time to be able to share values of the social milieu. Besides, reference is made to the components of the textbooks, which play an important role in learning, but also to other data that directly/ indirectly related to them and cultivate fertile ground for future knowledge. Two school textbooks have been used as the sample of this research that are currently used in Special Education schools. More specifically the titles of these books are “Cognitive abilities” and “Emotional management”. From the research of these two school textbooks it has become apparent that there exists a large emphasis not only on the cognitive part of the cultivation of pupils but also on the acquisition of certain skills and knowledge that partakes in their everyday lives
