The current interest of this professional and social problem is complex in regard with more aspects, due to the fact that the standardization of terminology use has wide meaning in the treatment of people with disabilities which essentially determine certain contents, aspects and actions. In this paper, conditionally, for all people with disability, according to the classification used in the Republic of Macedonia, the term disability is used. In practice and in communication, as well as in literature and legal regulations, a large number of different terms are used, which cause problems in protection, education and rehabilitation of people with disabilities. This paper presents a survey of the most used terms in international and national documents as well as in certain European countries and makes a conclusion that those are the terms: disability (as a general term) and children with special educational needs (when the term is used only for children). The paper refers to the terms for defectology and special education, giving the answer that there is no sign of equality between these two terms. Stating that special education is a part of defectological science, it concludes that besides the term defectology which is used in our country, in international communication the term special rehabilitation and education to be used (which actually is the subject matter of defectology as a science).
