I am a teacher of preschool children with disabilities. I make software for the children in my classrooms.* I have also been making table games and activities using IntelliTools Overlay Maker since IntelliTools released it on the market.

There are a variety of reasons I use Overlay Maker(R) as my tool in developing these games.

(1) Very simple to use

(2) Resize graphics easily and fast

(3) Add text easily

(4) Make a template and rework the game to meet the individualized needs of children in a matter of minutes.

Some basic principles I use are the following:

This session at CSUN 1998 is a lab session where participants actually experience the making of the games.

These pieces of software are available through SoftTouch, Don Johnston, Incorporated, IntelliTools, Inc., Mayer-Johnson and other authorized dealers.
