MDE-LIO offers a loan program that allows teacher consultants for the visually impaired (TCVI) to borrow an assistive technology device for eight weeks. This gives schools an opportunity to see if students will benefit before investing money in a new device.

To borrow an assistive technology device, complete and submit the Assistive Technology (AT) Loan Rationale Form [PDF]. Please note that it may take up to two weeks to approve your request.
