Mission: To promote assistive technology to enhance independence for Washington residents with disabilities of all ages.
WATAP provides assistive technology (AT) resources and expertise to all Washingtonians with disabilities, their families, and their support network to aid in making decisions and obtaining the technology and related services needed for employment, education and independent living.

Specifically, WATAP has a Device Lending Library.  They offer low cost and free services including Device Demonstrations, Device Lending, Alternative Financing, Device Reuse, Public Awareness Activities, and Technical Assistance. 

Some devices are loaned short-term while residents assess the device. They also loan their "outdated equipment" in a long-term loan program.  To view these devices, go to NATADS Public Access, set up an account, and see the classified items for long-term borrowing.  https://myatprogram.org/

Devices you can borrow include, but are not limited to,

devices to assist speech communication
telephone and door signaler and amplifier
 readers for vision impairment
hand-held magnifiers
computer mice and keyboards and apps for people with disabilities
reading assistance
ergonomic keyboards
large button remote controls
environmental adaptions such as door knob handles
and more...

Through development of collaborative partnerships, WATAP strives to facilitate communication and knowledge among organizations, as well as, support services that uphold the missions of both WATAP and our partners to meet the AT needs of Washingtonians.
