Mail Your Return

Teachers may also return items via mail. Please consider the following tips:

  • Do not overfill boxes. Boxes that are too heavy are easily damaged during shipping.
  • Be sure to include chargers, cords, parts, cases, and guidebooks. 
  • When returning an APH high-ticket item or Assistive Technology Loan Library equipment, email [email protected] to receive a prepaid UPS return label. 
  • Include a note if an item needs repair.
