The pandemic caused by COVID-19 created havoc in schools across the world as it necessitated school closures and lockdowns, and/or a sudden switch to an online mode of learning. Although all children and teachers were adversely affected, children with disabilities faced additional problems. Special education teachers bore the burden of having to continue providing high quality special education in the face of these challenges. In this paper, I present findings from a survey of special education teachers through use of qualitative and arts-based research technics.

I am deeply appreciative of the support provided by the school district for this study and grateful to the special education teachers for sharing their experiences. I thank Dr. Paresh Mishra, Associate professor, department of Organizational Leadership, PFW, for his suggestions.
