Overview

Many schools have purchased Assistive Technology (AT) devices for students who have graduated or moved out of district. Many of the AT devices, special keyboards or mice, software, laptops, communication devices, wheelchairs and more are in a closet, on a shelf, in a desk drawer – not being used.

What if another student in your district or across the state could benefit from that AT device? Help recycle and reuse unused AT devices with the AT School Share! This is a "members only" online sharing tool for Massachusetts School systems.

The AT School Share allows participating entities (e.g. collaboratives, public/charter school districts, and private/public schools) to track their inventory of Assistive Technology devices. It is also designed to encourage the recycling of devices that are no longer in use and that have been marked as available for "sharing" (e.g. short or long term loan or sale/donation) to others.

Anyone can search the listings of devices that are on the AT School Share web site but only approved, logged in users can contact listers and track their own inventory.

Find out if your collaborative, district or school is participating. Get started today for FREE. Contact us!

MassMATCH is continuing to develop and fine-tune the AT School Share web site and its functionality (currently in a Pilot Program) so that it best serves the Massachusetts School systems. Approved entities and their users participate as “beta-testers” and can expect to be contacted for feedback and for recommendations for how to improve the program. MassMATCH may solicit feedback by phone and/or email. Feel free to contact us with your feedback.
