Abstract

Abstract: The goal of proponents and opponents of institutions is normalization of life for individuals with disabilities. Technology is a norm in our society today. Therefore, any training towards normalization without the integration of technology is not geared towards normalization. For technology to be integrated effectively, teachers must be prepared to use technology. Positive attitudes toward technology and knowledge on how to integrate technology in teaching are key factors in integration technology in any training environment. The objective of this research was to study the perceptions of special education teachers to the integration of hypermedia in the instructions of adults with mental disabilities. One state institution has taken the innovative step to integrate technology in teaching adults with developmental disabilities. A staff development-training program was designed to teach teachers how to design and integrate technology with adults with mental disabilities.
