Any buy/sell/trade sites for therapy equipment???

IVE been trying to find the Listening Program with bone conduction on eBay and I just missed it last night! It kills me that we can't afford some things that may really help. There has to be a swap site somewhere, I can't be the only person!

I know what you mean. So many things would be great for my boys, but I cannot afford them and flex funds are nill to none right now.

There are some groups on Facebook but I really don't use them much anymore so can't say if anything like you are looking for would be up for trade or not. There is also this Ebay like site called Different Needz.

Re: Any buy/sell/trade sites for therapy equipment???

Here are the two I know about. I used to belong to a Yahoo group as well but I think it may no longer be around because I can't find it.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/spec...ref=ts&fref=ts

https://www.facebook.com/groups/232877393408944/

Is your child deaf or HOH? You could maybe try the local deaf/HOH groups to see if they have something.

I'm no longer active in the blind community but when Alec was around 2yo he was getting vision therapy through the local group funded by federal government grants. Since he was already on their radar, they covered adapted toys and hotel stay to a disability conference. Apparently the blind community is very well funded. It is one of the few programs we used where we got stuff without even having to jump through hoops. I'm assuming the deaf community is just as well funded but you know what they say about assumptions.

thanks! just requested to join those. I also found a yahoo group and submitted a request but never got a response.
she is hoh but that is not why the therapy is needed. she has down syndrome and we can apply for a small grant about $400 a year only. Lots of funding around here that I hear about on the autism scholarship, squat for kids with ds.

I was also going to say that there is the FB group: Medical Supply Exchange and they always have lots and lots of supplies listed. Hope you find something useful!
