Through a grant with the Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI), the Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council has published a list of lending libraries across the State of Ohio. These libraries provide access to assistive technology, medical equipment and adaptive toys to support people with developmental disabilities.
The list of Ohio Lending Libraries is available online as an interactive online Google map and other downloadable formats. People can use the map to search lending library programs statewide or in specific regions, based on their needs.
OCALI assessed and compiled this information through an Ohio DD Council grant that concluded in May, 2018 called "Identification of Assistive Technology Loan Programs in Ohio." The goal of the grant was to develop a comprehensive list of assistive technology lending programs/libraries throughout Ohio and the services each provides so people with developmental disabilities can more easily explore assistive technology options.
