  • General Information

    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): means any: (1) item; (2) piece of equipment; or (3) product system; whether acquired commercially off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of a student with a disability. The term does not include a medical device that is surgically implanted or the replacement of such device.

    All requests for PATINS and ICAM direct services, such as borrowing from our Lending Library, requesting a training, or requesting Accessible Educational Materials or supplies from the ICAM, must come to us directly from an Indiana public LEA employee, for Indiana public school students, and all materials, supplies, and equipment must remain within Indiana. Please contact PATINS Director, Daniel McNulty, with any questions you might have.

    Please contact Lending Library Managers with all questions regarding loans and shipping policies.

    It is the school's responsibility to look for other avenues to obtain necessary equipment if it is required by an IEP and not available from PATINS.

    If you need additional information about an app, once inside the document you can click on the Apple vendor link. You can borrow an iPad with apps, both paid and/or free apps, or we can send apps directly to your device as long as it is not being managed by an MDM solution such as Filewave. Please contact us if you do not see an app that you are interested in, and we can possibly add it to our listing.
