The Assistive Technology Loan Library (ATLL) was first developed in 1994 and has been supported in growth through the Mississippi Bend AEA (MBAEA) and through contributions from Scott County Regional Authority and the Riverboat Development Authority.
The ATLL provides short-term device loans to students (0-21) within MBAEA with IFSP, IEP, 504 Plans, Solution-Focused Intervention Plans or other considerations for the need for accommodations and adaptive equipment.
Loans are provided on a short term basis (usually 2-4 weeks depending on the device) to provide students with:
- A trial period to determine device appropriateness and
- Short-term backup for a broken device (dependent upon device availability).
Some devices are available for checkout through this website (see links below) and others are available by contacting the Assistive Technology Team, MBAEA.
