The Wisconsin Assistive Technology Resource Map was created by CESA 2 to connect students with IEPs to assistive technology resources available in Wisconsin. The map displays resources by county, provides guiding questions, and serves as a valuable resource to students, families/guardians, caregivers, case managers/special education teachers, and IEP teams. Resources are available through lending libraries across the state where individuals can select AT resources for trials with students at no cost.
The Assistive Technology Lending Center (ATLC) is a lending library of high-end Alternative and Augmentative Communication(AAC) equipment for trial purposes. The ATLC provides high-end AAC devices costing $4000.00 or more for loan to Wisconsin LEA public school licensed professional educators for trial with children ages 3 to 18 who have IEPs and are enrolled in public schools or students age 19-21 who are enrolled in a Wisconsin LEA school program and have an IEP.
WisTech works with Independent Living Centers (ILCs) across Wisconsin to make available assistive technology resources for loan to both schools and families. Click above to learn more.

The Wisconsin Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired (WCBVI) houses a library of assistive technology specifically for students who are blind or have low vision. This equipment is available for loan to school districts, CESAs, and other local education agencies to use with students on a trial basis. Available devices include video magnifiers (CCTVs), braille displays, braille notetakers, and other specialized equipment. Equipment is usually requested through the student’s Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI) or other school/district personnel.
As part of a national network cooperating with the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS), the Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library (WTBBL) provides audio books and braille materials to persons, living in Wisconsin, who cannot see regular print or handle print materials. WTBBL patrons receive and return books and equipment, postage-free through the U.S. Postal Service.
