EI Assistive Technology Lending Library

The CAIU Early Intervention Assistive Technology Lending Library (CAIU EI AT LL) is a library of assistive technology and resource materials available to early intervention professionals within the CAIU service area which includes Cumberland, Perry, Dauphin and Northern York counties.

Equipment Inventory

The CAIU EI AT LL inventory consists primarily of specialized assistive technology devices that are otherwise difficult for an individual to obtain for trial use.

Who May Request Loans

Requests for equipment loans may be made by an early intervention specialist (i.e. teacher, speech therapist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, vision or deaf and hard of hearing specialist or consultant) for training or demonstration purposes.

These library materials are only available for use with children birth to 5 years of age.

Forms are also available by calling 717-732-8400 ext. 8099 or emailing eiatlendinglibrary@caiu.org.

Completed request forms can be sent to EI AT Lending Library via mail (55 Miller Street, Enola PA 17025) or email eiatlendinglibrary@caiu.org.
