This is a webinar with Speaker Rachel Kruzel, Augsburg University. Conducted for the QIAT-PS project.

With the Assistive Technology market booming, and budgets getting tighter and tighter in higher education and K-12, free and low cost assistive technology options are becoming a more mainstream option. However, with the sheer number of these tools being able to support students with a variety of needs, how does one stay abreast of the constant developments, updates, and new features? Participants of this session will learn about approximately a dozen of the latest and greatest programs, apps, and extensions that support student learners; all costing less than roughly $10. Topic areas include literacy support, writing support, notetaking and organization/task management. Having a toolbox of free and low cost assistive technology, such as these tools, is an asset to any AT program.

I found this presentation quite useful and I have some other options that I use. In addition to your list, I would just the following:

Goodwill Wheelchair and Equipment Recycling
PACER SUPER Program for posting equipment no longer needed
Pass It On Center
Visit the National Assistive Technology Device Reutilization Coordination and Technical Assistance Center to learn what it means to reuse AT and why AT reuse is important.
National Reuse Resource Directory
NATTAP and the National Pass It On Center are cataloging programs that help consumers and families reuse assistive technology devices such as wheelchairs, walkers, computers, or other equipment for daily living. Find one near you. If you run such a program, please register and add your information to the Pass it On Center directory.
Project HERO
Salvation Army Thrift Stores
