Long-Term Loan

The Assistive Technology Review Committee (ATRC) reviews assistive technology (AT) and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) equipment applications for students. The committee is composed of the following professionals: assistive technology specialist, augmentative and alternative communication specialist, occupational therapist, and special education teacher. When necessary, professionals from other disciplines are invited to assist the committee in reviewing the applications.

The committee generally meets on the first Tuesday of each month. Completed applications must be received five days prior to the scheduled meeting.

Applications should be emailed to:

assistivetechnology@pps.net (Subject: ATRC)

Applicants will be notified in writing of the committee’s recommendation to approve or not approve the AT for long-term loan. This recommendation will be based on the supporting data submitted with the LTL application.
