Device Lending Library

AAC policy


All high-tech AAC devices (Accent 800, 1000, 1400, Tobii Dynvox I-13, I-16, etc.) must be borrowed through SLPs or OTs only. Families wishing to borrow a high-tech AAC device through Assistive Technology of Ohio MUST have an SLP or OT they are currently working with request the device.

 

NEW -- Device Lending Library COVID Update: In-person pick-up and return option is now open only on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. until further notice. If you wish to pick up or return a device in person, please call 614-292-2390, or email atohio@osu.edu to make arrangements for those times.

We are currently working limited hours, but are still available by telephone (800-784-3425) or email (atohio@osu.edu). There will be someone staffing the office through the week, but with limited hours. We have resumed shipping out devices on Tuesdays and Thursdays for now. 

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 spetka.1@osu.edu or atohio.org.

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. The device will be shipped to the professional requesting it. We are no longer shipping iPads to families.
