AT Consortium member districts have full access to the Lending Library, a continually expanding collection of AT and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) tools. AT and AAC tools can be used for student trial, ensuring that the device is a good match for the student, or as a loaner when a student device is in need of repair. District staff can borrow AT and AAC tools in order to familiarize themselves with these devices and their features. The AT Lending Library is housed at EASTCONN’s Commerce Drive facility in Columbia. More information about the AT and AAC tools that are available in the library can be found on our website, www.eastconn.org/at.
Benefits: Consortium membership allows access to the products and tools available through the EASTCONN Lending Library. This enables professional staff to become familiar with the latest in product developments and allows students to try out devices in their traditional learning environments. Trial use of devices promotes the best device selection to match students' needs.
