Please Note: We no longer have an office at Martha Morehouse Pavilion

That office has relocated to Area 1700, 1314 Kinnear Road, Columbus, OH 43212.
This relocation affects the Device Lending Library, Assistive Technology Consults, and Information and Referral. Gaye Spetka has joined Bill Darling and Eric Rathburn in AT Ohio's Kinnear Road location in Columbus. Although the toll free number (800-784-3425) will remain the same, Gaye has a new local phone number: 614-292-2390. For questions about the Device Library, AT Consults, Information and Referral, or for other information about Assistive Technology of Ohio, please call 800-784-3425 or 614-292-2390.

Who We Are

Assistive Technology of Ohio (AT Ohio) is a federally funded nonprofit organization housed at The Ohio State University. AT Ohio's fiscal agent is The Ohio State University Research Foundation. AT Ohio is the officially designated tech act program for Ohio.

The Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation (OSERS), a division of the U.S. Department of Education, provides funding for all tech act programs. Each state and U.S. territory provide appropriate services under the guidelines of the Assistive Technology Act of 2004.

To learn more about assistive technology go to Assistive Tech, the national web site for Assistive Technology.

To find out about tech act programs for other states, go to RESNA.

Our Mission

AT Ohio's mission is to help Ohioans with disabilities learn about or acquire assistive technology. Assistive Technology refers to devices, equipment or services that assist individuals with disabilities to function independently in the areas of work, home or school. We offer several programs and services to achieve that goal. We also keep up with current legislative activity that affects persons with disabilities, and educate legislators about the needs and concerns of citizens with disabilities.


If you have participated in any of Assistive Technology of Ohio's programs, have borrowed a device from our lending library, or have borrowed a toy from any of the libraries participating in our Adaptive Toy Lending Program, or if you were a recipient of a refurbished computer from our Computer Refurbish program, we want your input! Please go to our new user survey page and follow the link for the appropriate program or service. Completion of a survey takes only a few minutes, and you will be helping us improve our programs. If you use assistive technology to access your computer, but cannot access our surveys, please contact us at and we will gladly furnish you with an alternate format.


Why not donate it to Assistive Technology of Ohio's Computer Refurbish program? (Your donation may be tax-deductible.) Please note: we do NOT accept printers. Contact Eric Rathburn at 866-801-7306, 614-688-3222 or e-mail at
