Tech for REC

The Tech for REC (recreation, education, employment, and community) Program is designed to temporarily equip consumers with needed technology for short term accommodation purposes, trial use, evaluation, to make an informed purchase, or participate in virtual programming offered by The Ability Center and other community organizations. Consumers will work with staff to develop independent living goals which can be met with the help of assistive technology.

Switch adapted toys and leisure items are also available for loan through a grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. Independent play, leisure activities, and social participation are the primary goals of the adaptive toy selection. The Ability Center will continue to expand this program through funds from donations, grants, and collaboration with organizations such as AT Ohio.

This service is restricted to consumers of The Ability Center. In order to borrow a device from our lending closet, you will need to work with a staff member to create an assistive technology goal or, a goal that requires the use of assistive technology.
