Special education is a teaching method used to ensure that students with learning, behavioral, emotional or social disorders do not fall behind on their educational development. Special education instructors use adapted technology, accessible lesson plans and individualized teaching procedures to accommodate the particular needs of students. Individualized special education attention is mandated by law for students who require it, thus there is a constant need for such teachers. According to Indeed, the average salary of a special education teacher is $40,000.
