Device Demonstrations are available to individuals with disabilities, their families, providers, and qualified professionals. Demonstrations are provided in-person or virtually and allow you to compare the features and benefits of devices. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and try devices at no cost.
Short-Term Loans are available to individuals with disabilities and professionals at no cost. Short Term Loans are available for up to 30 days to trial the device in your unique setting (home, employment setting, educational setting, in the community). Loans help the borrower determine if the device is going to meet their needs before making a decision to purchase the device. Professionals have access to loans to provide training and education to staff and/or individuals they support.
AT Assessments help determine possible AT solutions to address the needs and abilities of an individual. Assessments are conducted by SEMCIL’s AT Specialist who will assess the individual, their environment, tasks, and technologies that could help to increase, improve, or maintain their independence. Assessments are available for a fee. Please contact us for more information.
