Lending Library

Effective implementation of assistive technology begins with a thorough assessment of student needs. A multidisciplinary team, comprised of parents, students and professionals, must focus on student needs, tasks he/she is expected to complete and alignment of tools to support the needs and achievement of tasks and goals.

The Alt+Shift Lending Library contains assistive technology equipment and software that is available to Michigan’s PK-12 public schools and affords districts the opportunity to try assistive technology with a student who has an Individualized Education Program (IEP) to assess effectiveness at meeting their needs prior to purchase. Length of loan will vary depending on individual plans for data collection and consideration of assistive technology needs.

Institutes of higher education (IHEs)/educator preparation institutions (EPIs) are able to borrow assistive technology equipment and/or software from the lending library for a period of one week for the purpose of exposing university students entering the educator profession to options for addressing the needs of students with disabilities.
