In this paper, the authors briefly address persistent and unresolved challenges. They identify contemporary change drivers, and discuss ways in which teacher education professionals could leverage the drivers to inform the development of 21st century models for special education teacher development aimed at improving outcomes for students with disabilities.

Change drivers include the digital revolution, the diversity gap, the credibility factor, and the demand for collective impact. The authors conclude with a call to action.
