Services Provided: AAC Loan Bank offers SLPs Speech Language Pathologists the opportunity to borrow one or two devices, for 30 days, free of charge. These devices may be used during evaluations to assess for the appropriateness of features that match those of devices currently available from commercial vendors. Language encoding systems, voice output features and physical access to the device may be assessed with available devices. After this evaluation, a request may be made for the individual's insurance plan to pay for rental of the specific device recommended. Technical assistance is available from the SLP consultant to the Therapy Services Unit to determine which devices may be most appropriate for assessment purposes. Switch Evaluation Kit offers therapists a variety of switches and switch operated devices to assess an appropriate type of switch for an individual's use. This kit is for assessment purposes only and is free of charge. Adaptive Eating Equipment Loan Bank offers therapists an array of adapted utensils, dishes and drinking vessels for assessment purposes. Access to this equipment is free of charge.
