Device Lending Library
A new Device Request Form has been posted.
While we prefer that high-tech AAC devices (Accent 800, 1000, 1400, Tobii Dynavox I-13, I-16, etc.) are borrowed through SLPs or OTs, loan decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. Families wishing to borrow a high-tech AAC device through Assistive Technology of Ohio are invited to submit requests for the high-tech AAC devices. We will determine your eligibility to borrow the device based on your request/agreement form, and any past history with us. References may be requested upon review of any request/agreement form.
A Note About C Pens: Due to borrowers failing to return C Pens, they may now only be borrowed through Educational Representatives.
OrCams may only be borrowed through vision specialists or vision professionals, such as a low vision teacher, case manager, etc.
iPad with communication apps policy
iPads with speech apps can only be borrowed by professionals such as Speech Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, and teachers. If you are a parent wishing to borrow an iPad with speech apps, you MUST have an SLP, teacher or an Occupational Therapist request the device, or have a positive loan history with Assistive Technology of Ohio. The device will be shipped to the professional requesting it. We are no longer shipping iPads to families without a positive loan history with Assistive Technology of Ohio.
In-person pick-up and return option is now open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., and Fridays by appointment. If you wish to pick up or return a device in person, please call 614-292-2390, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for those times so we know to expect you.
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, and other representatives of education, is April 30.
For more information, please call Gaye Spetka at 800-784-3425, 614-292-2390 or email email@example.com or atohio.org.
