PWC Assistive Technology Lending Library

Welcome to the Patty Walsh-Cassidy (PWC) Assistive Technology Lending Library

The PWC Lending Library offers users the ability to see for themselves a range of available resources and determine which best matches their needs before committing to purchase. It encompasses a wide range of items, equipment, or programs to aid people in need of mobility, visual, auditory, speech, physical, and cognitive support. The library is dedicated to the legacy of Patty Walsh-Cassidy, a CCATT Center co-founder, speech therapist, assistive technology specialist, teacher, and innovator. 

Through our collection, library users have access to hardware, software, apps, and devices. Borrowers can explore these resources in their home or school environments and determine which assistive technology options best fit their needs. Housed at the CCATT Center at the Collaborative for Education Services in Northampton, MA, the PWC Lending Library opens the door to possibility, and enables students with disabilities to reach their goals, instead of being relegated to the sidelines.
