Recognizing the strengths and weaknesses of students allows, in the educational field, to design social teaching experiences to develop skills that facilitate the learning processes of mathematics through the exchange of experiences for the transformation of educational realities. On the other hand, this research focuses on making mathematical thinking visible in students with Visual Sensory Disabilities (VSD) in regular schools, through the design, adaptation and evaluation of a didactic strategy. For this purpose, qualitative research is proposed, under the methodology of action research supported by the protocols of the Communities of Practice of Wenger (1998), through which an educational environment is created, in which the members of the community of practice have a determining role in the construction of mathematical thinking of a student with VSD in the San José De La Salle Institute, Colombia. The data collection process is developed through the mechanism of data triangulation with the use of three sources of information: focus groups, semi-structured interview and direct observation. The expert judgment protocol will be used for validation. At the end of this research, it is expected that the students will handle the original concrete material derived from the didactic strategy designed for each one of them and through this, the mathematical learning in the classroom processes developed by their teachers will become visible.
