Job outlook data

Special education teachers held around 450,000 jobs in 2014, the last year for which data are available. Employment of special education teachers is projected to grow 6 percent from 2014 to 2024.

Overall demand in this field will be driven by school enrollment, the need for special education services and the federal budget. According to the U.S. Office of Special Education, an estimated 948,000 children nationwide may be both non-native English speakers and have disabilities—a substantial population that could benefit from bilingual special education services. Many students with limited English proficiency are being placed in bilingual education as an alternative to special education.
