This paper presents the highlights of the Special Education Faculty Needs Assessment Study (SEFNA). Actions taken after the release of The 2001 Faculty Shortage Study demonstrate that supply-and-demand imbalances can be improved. The projected shortage of special education faculty will directly and negatively affect students with disabilities and their families. Excessive demand for new special education faculty is the result of multiple factors. Solutions to this predicted supply-and-demand imbalance must be direct and immediate.
