AT Depot's relationship with Maryland’s AT Co-op makes assistive technology more affordable to schools, agencies, organizations, seniors, and families by provides discounted purchasing opportunities. We have a variety of assistive technology available at discounted prices including:

  • Educational and Curricular Access Software
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Communication Devices
  • Computer Access
  • Aids for Daily Living
  • Visual Supports Software
  • Deaf/Hard of Hearing Supplies
  • Sensory Aids
  • Therapeutic Supplies

The co-op can offer such good prices because we know the products and the "players" through years of professional contact and on-going conference attendance. Our price list is constantly changing due to competitive bids being conducted every six months to take advantage of price reductions and new product developments. We also conduct additional direct negotiations with manufacturers.

The co-op serves as a "reseller" to offer the best pricing on certain product lines where margins are small. We believe in low overhead we have part time staff, pay for minimal advertising, etc.). Another way we bring you discounted products is by getting permission from various manufacturers to hold "statewide" versions of "district" licenses, allowing small systems to benefit from the purchase levels of large systems.
