TRAID Loan Closet: This is a free resource that enables people with all types of disabilities to borrow equipment and assistive technology for a limited time. People may use the items to sample while they seek funding to purchase their own equipment. RCIL also provides people with information on funding resources.
One-on-One Consultations: The TRAID staff is proficient with many technologies and offers one-on-one consultations for people with disabilities and professionals upon request. While most consultations are performed at the TRAID office, in-home consultations may be arranged according to need and as staff resources permit.
Information/Demonstration: TRAID has a number of information technologies on display at the RCIL office and welcomes people with disabilities and professionals to audition them, or to use them when they have been unsuccessful in acquiring such technologies. TRAID often bring its smaller technologies to fairs, trainings, and other outreach activities in the community; and periodically invites vendors of both new and lesser-known technologies on-site to provide learning opportunities for our staff and the community. TRAID regularly disseminates information on new assistive and information technologies to its network of employers, educational entities, and community groups.
