Special education teachers are important figures in the education of children with disabilities.
The main role of the special education teacher is to provide instruction and support which facilitates the participation of students with special needs in the regular classroom. Assessment, instructional planning, and teaching are also their responsibilities.
These educators also serve as case managers and be responsible for the development, implementation, and evaluation of students’ IEPs. They remain professional at all times when working with children with exceptional educational needs.
They also collaborate with the general education teacher in adapting the given curriculum, providing appropriate modifications, ensuring the implementation of modifications, and assessing overall progress of the child.
They also work closely with families to achieve the best educational outcome for the students and always ensuring a safe environment for the students.
