Resources

Here are a few places to check out:

Device loan - The device loan program helps individuals try out equipment in the location they will use it:  at home, work, school or recreational activities.  It’s a “try before you buy” approach which helps individuals and funding agencies make wiser choices. A wide range of assistive technology devices are available including augmentative communication ( for people with limited speech), computer access, low-vision aids, assistive listening, aids for daily living, switches, environmental controls, adaptive toys and recreational devices. Devices can be borrowed for a two week period.  Toys and other AT for young children (birth to 5 years old) may be loaned for longer periods of time.

WCWAA Challenger Sports 
The mission of Challenger Sports is to provide sporting opportunities for the special needs community to reach individual and team potential by providing participants, families and those who serve them with training, support and resources to grow social, emotional, physical and developmental skills.
