Substantive content of professional competence, presented by a set of motivational-axiological, cognitive, reflective and activity components was emphasized. The work has theoretical-methodological and practical significance, since the results obtained during the study, significantly expand the scope of knowledge of competent approach, contain new conceptual approaches, as well as make it possible to determine the potential field of applied research, relevant to defectological education.
