We are pleased to provide the PATINS Lending Library, a no-cost
service, that loans assistive technology devices (see definition below), software, resource materials, etc., to school personnel at Indiana's Local Education Agencies (LEA). Training and/or technical assistance may be requested to accompany any of the items available for loan. These items are shipped directly to your school. They are used for the purpose of preview and/or trial periods with students. Items are loaned for a six-week evaluation period. If you do not see an item that you would like to borrow in our catalog, please let us know.Assistive Technology (AT)
