Special Education Teachers


The field of special education is expected to grow by 3 percent through 2028, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), or more slowly than the average for all careers. The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way teachers work, with many, including those in special education, teaching online classes from their homes until schools are safe to reopen. The long-term effect of the pandemic is yet to be determined but special education teachers will continue to be needed to educate special needs students. The DOL reports that job opportunities may be better for those with "experience with early childhood intervention and skills in working with students who have multiple disabilities, severe disabilities, or autism spectrum disorders."
