During the ongoing pandemic, it has become evident that a portion of individuals and families services by the Los Angeles County Regional Centers have been unable to access services and supports due to not having access to appropriate technology. The LAC Regional Centers recognize these technological services will still be needed after the pandemic. The Technology Lending Library will increase access to remote and virtual services for individuals and families by providing eligible participants with tablets and/or laptops, data service, and technical support so that they can better access remote services as providers innovate alternative and remote ways to deliver services such as ABA, ILS, Early Start Services and other day services. The contracted provider will purchase hardware, software, and data service, as well as provide technical support, including adapting equipment that may be needed by some individuals. The provider will also develop a system for on-going billing purposes and to track devices and support requests. The LAC Regional Centers will identify those served who are most in need of this service in order to receive remote and/or alternate day activities/services delivery. The contracted provider(s) will be responsible to develop a protocol and agreement for the loan of the equipment to the participants and may coordinate with regional center non-residential and transportation agencies for its delivery to each participant and for pick-up of returned or damaged devices.
