40 Must See YouTube Special Education Videos

Matt Holden's categorized list of must-see special education videos is a gold mine for educators and parents. Check it out here.

Special education is a hot topic on YouTube these days, but finding the videos worth watching can be time consuming at best and futile at worst. So I am exceedingly thankful for special education graduate students assigned the task of compiling lists of worthwhile special education videos.

Enter Matt Holden

Matt Holden is one of those grad students (or at least I assume he is) who found and emailed the information about an article he recently wrote for the website (Did you know such a website existed? I didn’t until Matt’s email.) The article is titled – you got it – 40 Must See YouTube Special Education Videos.

And the Categories Are…

  • Introductory special education teaching methods
  • Effective special education teaching methods
  • Effective autism teaching methods
  • Other effective special education teaching methods
  • Special education teaching policies

Parents Can Watch the Special Education Videos, Too

The categories make it sound like the videos are for educators only. But they are an informative resource for parents, too. Some of them discuss IEP meetings, many explain special ed lingo, and some highlight resources you may want to recommend to your child’s teacher.But check it out for yourself at

    Hey, CJ,

    I haven’t had time to watch all the videos, but the ones I did were informative and fun. Do you know Torrie in videos 36 & 37?

    any videos geared for middle school children to explain special education, IEP’s etc., to them?

    Check with this organization. They have some DVDs for older kids, and they might be what your looking for. If not, contact the people at Good Friends and see if they can point you in the right direction.
