Assistive Technology devices and resources are available for loan to all Colorado’s Public Schools with an updated SWAAAC Team Agreement. Most school districts and/or BOCES have designated AT service providers and a SWAAAC Team Coordinator. Team Coordinators as well as a small number of specially trained Early Intervention Consultants are able to login and check out items from our loan library.
SWAAAC teams are required to turn in a SWAAAC Team Agreement & Loan Library Policies contract signed by the current Special Education Director as well as the Team Coordinator in order to access the loan library.
We do require loan library borrowers to complete a number of surveys during the course of your loan. We apologize for the time this takes; however, it is necessary for us to provide this data in order to improve the services and supports we offer and to continue to receive funds to operate the loan library.
To view a list of all available loan library items, go to our on-line Alexandria Loan Library Catalog The SWAAAC Loan Library catalog details all the inventory currently available to SWAAAC team members through the Alexandria Loan Library. Alexandria is searchable by anyone (teachers, caregivers, family members, related service professionals). It is a great resource of information including descriptions and features of devices, purchase price, and a picture of the item(s). Assistive Technology service providers can direct AT stakeholders/clientele/consumers to Alexandria in order to preview potential AT solutions.
Items are only able to be checked out by designated professionals with login access. School district SWAAAC Team Coordinators and Early Intervention Specialists use the Alexandria Loan Library Catalog to request equipment loans. If you represent a child with a disability and do not have login credentials, but would like to request a device loan, please contact your local SWAAAC Team Coordinator or EI Specialist. Loans are subject to local policy and made at the discretion of the designated local professionals.
For item checkout-related issues, please contact Shelly Essex.
