The South Carolina Assistive Technology Exchange is an online equipment reutilization database that helps citizens with disabilities and older people with functional limitations find affordable assistive technology devices and equipment. The South Carolina Assistive Technology Program (SCATP) does not profit from the sale of listed devices. Those with devices they no longer need, agencies with equipment no longer being used, or vendors with returned or overstocked equipment can list all available devices for use in education, employment, and community living environments, and connect with the consumers interested in finding these resources. SCATP often helps arrange transportation of equipment between those who need it and those who have it to give away or sell at a reduced price.
Go to the SCATP Exchange site, click "I've read and accept the terms" and go to the next page. Click "register" and it should be easy from there. You can register even if you don't have items to sell or give or find. You'll get a password and be in the system. If you don't have email, you can call SCATP to have your account information entered for you. Call Catherine Graham at 803 434-3189.
For more information about the SC AT Exchange, contact Catherine Graham (803 434-3189) or Janet Jendron (803 935-5273). The National Assistive Technology Technical Assistance Partnership (NATTAP) has a listing of all Tech Act Programs in the USA.
SCATP also has a listserv dedicated to information about equipment reuse in South Carolina. Please consider joining this, as well. Sign on at http://www.sc.edu/scatp/join.htm.
