Inside Teaching Special Education to Young Children

Special education teachers work with individuals who have mild to severe learning disabilities or special needs, such as autism or physical impairments, to improve their social, emotional and cognitive development. The most successful special education teachers are patient, organized and accepting. They should understand the needs of their students and effectively motivate them to improve and succeed, even under challenging circumstances.

Education Information

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), every state in the U.S. requires that special education teachers receive licensure and complete a teacher training program. The BLS reported that while most special education teachers must earn at least a bachelor's degree, a few states require teachers to hold a master's degree with a specialization (www.bls.gov). Associate's and doctoral degree programs in special education are also available.
