A different approach

Kids learn differently - kids with special needs might need things slowed down, show visually, or some other approach
Utilize the parents - they have lots of techniques that work well with their child
Peer role models and buddy systems work great, and benefit not only the kid with special needs but equally (if not more) it benefits the peer role model
Positive reinforcement is much more effective than negative reinforcement. Catch them doing something right

Breaking down skills into small pieces

The steps: Hearing what you're being asked to do, then seeing what you need to do, then physically doing it. Sometimes actually taking their arm or leg and doing the motion for them.

Handling emotions with kids with special needs

Address it, don't hide from it. Handle it the same as you would with any kid who gets upset - address it, teach them what is acceptable. Then re-focus them.
The parents are a great resource to get ideas

Reach out to the school to get more inclusive

P.E. teachers, school administrators could recommend a few kids that could be good candidates to join your team
