When All Else Fails … Other Tips for Getting AT

Often it takes your own creativity and perseverance to make things happen. You might also try the following to reach your AT goals:

  • Look in local thrift stores, at yard sales, on Craigslist, on local radio “swap shops” and in newspapers for used items.
  • If you, a friend or family member belong to a religious organization, social group or service club, ask if the organization is able to assist you.
  • Ask family or friends for help in identifying resources. If you’re not comfortable asking for direct assistance, suggest your AT as a gift idea.
  • Advertise in local media for the items you need.
  • Hold a yard sale. Get rid of what you don’t need so you can buy what you do need.
