The Edvocate's List of 123 Twitter Feeds for Special Educators

From The EDVOCATE

By Matthew Lynch

The Edvocate is pleased to produce its “Best of the Best” resource lists. These lists provide our readers with rankings for education-related blogs, twitter accounts, influencers, products, etc. These lists are meant to be fluid, and for that reason, they are regularly updated to provide up to the moment information.*


The way that K-12 learners are taught is in rapid flux, particularly when it comes to students in special education programs. According to a report by the Fordham Insititute, special education participation by K-12 students represented 13.1 percent of the nation’s student population in 2010.

From 2000 to 2010, students in special education categories like learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and emotional disturbances dropped in numbers. Cases of autism spiked dramatically, though, quadrupling over the 10-year span.

Combine these statistics with the way classroom technology has changed since the year 2000 and it makes sense that special education is in an adjustment period. The way that students are served through special education initiatives is evolving, as it should. Because of this, special educators need to need abreast of what’s new in their field. But how do you do this while trying to juggle so many duties?

Believe it or not, following special education experts on Twitter can be an excellent way to stay on top of the latest happenings in the field. To help you out, we decided to compile a list of the best Twitter Feeds for Special Educators.
