Loan Center

WATR's Device Loan Center offers a wide variety of Assistive Technology (AT) for Wyoming residents interested in borrowing a device for trial. Loan periods are typically six weeks, and offer people the opportunity to try devices so that they may make educated decisions prior to purchase.

To view available items visit the AT4ALL website.  
To begin borrowing items, fill out a WATR Loan Center Agreement or an Equipment Loan Agreement with a School District or State Agency.


Demonstrations

WATR Lab

One of our most valuable services is the demonstration of assistive technology devices. Perhaps you aren't aware of specific solutions, or maybe you're not sure what is available. We can work with you individually to arrange a customized demonstration of potential solutions. Some of our equipment is not portable and may involve multiple pieces or components, so we find that the best approach is to talk with you in advance so we can arrange a meaningful and helpful experience. Call us at 1-888-989-9463 when you're ready to explore new options.
