What does a Special Education Teacher do?
Children with special needs require unique instruction by specially trained professionals to help them achieve their highest potential and strive to progress beyond their limitations. Special education teachers are patient, understanding educators dedicated to giving each individual student the tools and guidance needed to help them maximize success
(Special Education for Students with Disabilities: Analysis and Recommendations)
Research has shown that regular education, if properly modified, can meet the needs of many more students with disabilities, but doing so is challenging.
Teachers who are most effective at raising overall academic standards are likely to have a lower tolerance for students with special needs.
(Anne, M. Hocutt)
Specially-trained educators create and apply appropriate curricula and assign activities that are specific to each student’s abilities and needs.
Special education teachers also involve themselves in each student’s academic, social and behavioral development.
Special education teachers provide specially designed instruction to individuals with disabilities.
They work to ensure that students with disabilities reach their learning potential
Before directly helping the child first special educators to help parents.
A child’s first community is the family. Families who have a child with special needs often have additional concerns, along with the particular strengths they have developed to help their child thrive
To ensure its acceptance, parents involvement must be viewed as a legitimate activity of the school, and reaching the family must be considered as Important as reaching a child.
The special education teachers do not only take classes like normal school or college teachers. They take active part in all of the activities that these students perform including the academic and non-academic works
The teachers who serve disabled students create stronger bonds with their students quicker than the regular teachers

Factors Affecting Outcomes for Special Education Students
Student academic and social success is affected more by the instructional models employed and the classroom environment than by placement in general or special education.
Students with learning disabilities (LD) perform slightly better and think of themselves as more competent academically when placed in special education.
Students with severe emotional disturbance (SED) are more likely to succeed in general education if they take part in vocational education and are integrated into the school, for example, through sports participation. However, students with SED who have a history of course failure may be more likely to drop out of school if placed in general education.
Students with hearing impairments appear to gain some academic advantage but suffer some loss of self-concept when placed in general education. The strength of the child’s auditory and oral skills is a critical determinant of success in general education. On average, hard-of-hearing students do not perform as well academically as normally hearing students in any setting, and the gap in performance increases with age.
