Ordering Specialized Aids and Equipment

The specialized aids and equipment from the IERC are for students who have been identified, case conferenced and registered with the ICAM as blind and low vision.

The IERC provides most of the items listed in the APH “Instructional Products Catalog” which is available free from the American Printing House for the Blind (APH), Inc.,1839 Frankfort Avenue, Louisville, KY 40206-0086, 800-223-1839 or 502-895-2405. Free manuals are available at  APH Downloadable Product Manuals.
  • Requests for specialized aids and equipment will be loaned from the IERC depository as quantities allow.
  • If you search the ICAM for an item and your results are unsuccessful, you may place a Special Request for that item. To place a special request on the ICAM search page, select Special Request and enter data or after you have searched the ICAM, you will have the option to place a “Special Request.”
  • If the item is not available, we may order from the American Printing House depending on availability and federal quota dollars generated by the student. Time frames for delivery of materials to the local education agency are dependent upon whether the requested items are on the IERC shelves or whether they need to be ordered. For updates on the status of an order, log into the ICAM and check the request status.
