About the Program
Oklahoma ABLE Tech and its statewide partners operate an assistive technology (AT) device demonstration center and device loan program (short-term loans) to increase access to and utilization of AT for individuals with disabilities. The program is available to Oklahoma residents with disabilities, their family members, and the professionals that support them.
To distinguish the differences with regard to device demonstration versus device loans, device demonstration can be defined as:
Device demonstrations compare the features and benefits of a particular AT device or category of devices for an individual or small group of individuals. For detailed information on device demonstration, link to the AT3 Center's page.
Device Loan, then, is defined by the AT Act as:
The purpose of a device loan (aka short-term loan) may be (1) to assist in decision-making; (2) to serve as a loaner while the consumer is waiting for device repair or funding; (3) to provide an accommodation on a short-term basis; or (4) for professional development. Here is the AT3 Center's detailed information on Device Loan.
Oklahoma ABLE Tech's assistive device inventory offers over 2,500 devices in many AT categories including devices and equipment for: speech communication, computer access, hearing, vision, daily living, environmental adaptations, learning/development, recreation, mobility, seating and positioning. ABLE Tech staff also provides guidance on funding resources for AT equipment.
