Device Lending Library
CORONAVIRUS POLICY UPDATE: Our office is currently closed until further notice per OSU coronavirus policies. We can still be reached by telephone at 800-784-3425 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Although we are still accepting device requests, no devices will be shipped until our office reopens. We apologize for any inconvenience, but thank you for your understanding and patience at this time.
If you have a device checked out, you should have received an email regarding a due date extension. If you did NOT get an email and need an extension, please contact Gaye Spetka via email at email@example.com.
Assistive technology devices can be life-changing - but they can also be very expensive. In tough budget times, you don't want to go out and buy an expensive device and then find out that isn't the right device for you. Fortunately, with the Assistive Technology of Ohio Device Lending Library, you don't have to.
AT Ohio has a large library of assistive technology devices for you to try out, free of charge.
Simply peruse our library for a device you think may be of benefit to you, then request it through our on-line application. Once we receive the signed agreement form, we will contact you with approval notice and shipping information. (We communicate through email. If you are borrowing a device, please check your email for updates and information on your request.)
You may try the device for 30 days from the day you receive it. No device will be released without a signed agreement form.
AT Ohio will send you a shipping label along with the device for you to return it to us after the 30-day trial period. If you prefer, you may also drop the device off at our west campus location.
Please note: due to the end of the school year, the cut off date to request devices used by SLPs, teachers, etc. in the school is April 30.
For more information, please call Gaye Spetka at 800-784-3425, 614-292-2390 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or atohio.org.
