The research aims to examine how teachers understand and perceive the influence of differentiation on instructional practices. This qualitative research aims to explore the perceptions of a teacher in implementing differentiated learning in students with special need in inclusive schools. The study interviewed 32 teachers (included senior, junior, and primary school) using observation and interview questions to promote conversational dialogue. The interview questions afforded teachers opportunities to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences pertaining of differentiated instruction about students learning profiles. Data analysis revealed the following aspects: (1) the learning that provides opportunities for students to learn naturally and efficiently, (2) the learning that provides opportunities for students to work independently and in groups, and (3) providing a conducive learning climate with various learning preferences. The study found that the teacher has not yet understood and taught students based on student learning profiles. Consequently, the research results form the basis for developing a differentiated learning model for a student with special needs in inclusive classes. This study supports training for regular teachers and special educators specifically about the application of differentiated learning.
