Article discusses a number of assistive technology (AT) integration resources for preschool teachers. Five main ideas are discussed: (1) developing technology-enhanced lesson plans, (2) planning for technology integration, (3) integrating AT, (4) monitoring student performance, and (5) the benefits of technology. The authors discuss the Georgia Project for Assistive Technology (GPAT), which is a resource for educators to consult when developing AT-enhanced lesson plans. The lesson plans address a wide range of classroom activities, including snack time, circle time, self-help, leisure activities, and early literacy skills. Hundreds of sample plans are included on GPAT’s web site at http://www.gpat.org.
