    Special Education

    Providing access to equitable opportunities for all students.

    Find trusted talent to support students with special needs.

    Working with students with special needs is one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet—one that also takes a specialized skill set. At Kelly Education, we have a team dedicated to helping schools hire and retain qualified teachers, paraeducators, tutors, and therapists for students who require an Individual Education Program (IEP).

    We’re here to help your district:

    • Recruit and hire vetted educators and support staff to support students with special needs.
    • Support special education talent through ongoing feedback and professional development. 
    • Manage compliance fulfillment and documentation.
    • Reduce the administrative burden for your HR team through hiring and scheduling. 
    • Access licensed physical, behavioral, and mental health therapists through Pediatric Therapeutic Services, a Kelly Education company.
