COVID-19 Updates:  Both ATRCs are operational, but limited.  We can perform some equipment demonstrations using remote technologies with advance notice. There are no drop in services available however. For more details;

We are practicing strict cleaning procedures for incoming equipment. There are numerous signs outside both offices indicating where to leave returned equipment to ensure we are not contributing to the spread of COVID-19. Six foot social distancing is also in effect for all in person communications.


How does the Device Demonstration Program work?  

These Programs Are FREE. At the centers, individuals and groups can explore hundreds of high- and low-tech devices that can meet a variety of needs.  From simple to sophisticated, Easter Seals MA has the technology for you.

The centers is conveniently located, our Boston center is located one block from South Station in our Boston office, while our Worcester center is located on Main Street, across from City Hall in our Worcester office. The ATRCs encourage you to schedule a visit, participate in a free workshop, or reserve a time to host your staff meeting or in-service training onsite at the ATRCs.

How does the Device Short-term Loan Program work?
The process is simple!  It’s like a lending library, only instead of books, you can take home the equipment and try it out for up to four weeks to see what works for you and what doesn't!

Requests for loans can come from you, a family member, friend, advocate or someone who is helping you with your assistive technology needs, such as a therapist, teacher or rehab center.  Complete a loan request form and get the technology you need today.

Hundreds of devices are available in the areas of communication, education, hearing and vision impairment, and daily living.
