You need to achieve certification in special education, including student teaching, coursework, and a standardized exam. You can continue to grow professionally through obtaining authorizations, such as for autism, to teach more specialized populations. Many special education teachers get a master’s degree or doctorate. Requirements vary slightly by state, so be sure to check your state’s requirements.
