Taylor’s Answer

Building trust with your student is so important. A lot of times special needs kids will act out or reject work because they don’t want judgment from other students or the teacher. When you show you care about that student, their interests, dislikes and their education it builds a bond. This makes it so that the student trusts that you can teach them and be an advocate for them. They will soon open up to their struggles which allows you to better help them. Building that relationship is so important!

My answer to this would be true to your own style, be kind and considerate, and remain observant and action-oriented. Those are key skills to ensure good interactivity between the instructor and students plus they promote good learning and collegiality between all attendees.

T.’s Answer

A a great special needs instructor is warm, available, excited and mindful. ... This is the instructor to whom a special needs student can realize they can to go with any issues or concerns or even to share an entertaining story. Incredible educators have great listening abilities and remove time from their too-bustling timetables for any individual who needs them

1. Be a good connector ( share your story having something in common)
2. Be a great communicator by listening and observering.
3. Build trust by caring about them and being considerate because people don't care how much you know but they want to know how much you care. Reinforcement of the positive what they have done.
4. Then pass on your message (what ever your trying to teach ) to them.

I agree with Taylor and Tom. I would also suggest doing observation hours in a special education classroom plus talk with the teachers. You will get more information from teachers in the classroom on what it takes to be a special education teacher. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
