Adaptive Equipment

Introduction

PCC makes a variety of equipment available to students. Much of this equipment can be borrowed directly from the library by current students with active library accounts. Specialized items require approval and coordination through Disability Services. Please contact your Disability Services Counselor if you need an item that doesn't seem to be available.

Items Loaned through the Library

Most general AT, such as alternate mice, keyboards, calculators, microphones, etc. can be borrowed by anyone who needs them.

Items Loaned through Disability Services

Specialized loans are available through DS upon approval for items such as Classmate readers, iPads, Laptops, etc.

Additional Notes

In addition to the items that can be checked out from the library, there are also specialized hardware and software applications that can be loaded onto computers as needed to ensure equal access, and Ergonomic Furniture such as chairs, podiums, and height adjustable tables that can be placed in classrooms and labs across our campus and extension sites as appropriate to meet individual need.
