In order to teach biology to deaf students, it is necessary to use didactical resources that properly give the access to the biological specific content. In this work, we described a didactical material called Just Genetics to teach meiosis and mitosis, two genetics topics that are related to syndromes and biotechnological aspects. The material was constructed with simple materials and its main advantage is the simple preparation and low cost that allows the production by anyone. To identify the effectiveness of this didactical material, we performed an evaluation with deaf students, which confirmed its potentiality for using in teaching not only for deaf but also for other students presenting an inclusive perspective. The material allows not only teaching this complex topic but also others regarding genetics or other biological themes.

Key words: School enrollment, genetic, deafness, inclusive education.
