Abstract

With the passage of special legislation for the education of children with disabilities, educators are required to provide services to children with disabilities and consider the appropriateness of new technologies as a tool or intervention. This article considers what teacher educators can do to familiarize their preservice teachers with options in assistive technology and prepare them to work with assistive technology. Preservice teachers need minimum competencies in technology and assistive technology. Teacher educators by providing three-prong instruction may play an important role in awakening in each prospective teacher the desire and ability to be the conduit for using assistive technology to develop the potential of each student with special needs.
