The research aims to study the online learning challenges for students with special needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey showed that the majority of respondents are in favor of lessons conducted in classes because it helps them to develop social skills. In addition, learning in the classroom facilitates the development of motor and face-to-face communication skills due to the variety of resources available. In this regard, collaborative learning and physical contact are important for students with special educational needs. Some students do not have access to the Internet and have not been able to use online learning platforms. Given the increasing use of online learning technologies in education, access to them is important for students with disabilities. when using these technologies, the context of teaching materials and favorable environment for students with disabilities should be taken into consideration.
