[games_access] Any thoughts on adding a "teacher mode" access to software for Special Ed (cognitive) software?

I've been wondering about ways to add access to a "teacher mode" or setup
mode for software used by those with cognitive disabilities. By teacher
mode I mean access to settings and configurations that you'd not want the
student to open by accident.
Any thoughts on ways to do this beyond making it a keyboard shortcut that
only the teacher knows? The downside in my mind to the keyboard shortcut
idea is that even if you put a nice little prompt on the screen that says,
"Press Ctrl+T to access settings", some people (teachers) won't figure it
A few things I've thought of is requiring one to hold down the Shift key
while clicking an access icon. E.g., have a "Gear" icon for settings, and
when moused over, a tool tip text says "Hold shift and click to access
settings", the assumption being that the student probably can't read or
understand the instructions.
