Assistive Technology Lending Library
Success with Assistive Technology for each unique individual demands that the technology is tested in the natural living environment. The Assistive Technology library lends a wide variety of devices to determine which works best to help individuals overcome their obstacles to independent living. Borrow the devices to determine what suits specific needs or as a short term accommodation if your device is being repaired or while you are waiting for the arrival of a purchased device. We also allow professionals, educators, and others to borrow devices from our inventory for professional development, training, academic, classroom, and other needs.
Our Assistive Technology Lending Library is available to our member organizations and the clients that they service.
