The Telecommunication Devices Access Program (TDAP) is now able to provide speech generating devices (SGDs). The 2009 Legislative Assembly approved SGDs to be included in TDAP as adaptive telephone equipment and in 2011, SGDs became available to eligible Oregonians for the first time in the history of the program. Only a few state programs nationwide offer SGDs, putting Oregon in the forefront of supporting the needs of those whose voices need to be heard. As a result, TDAP is excited to offer you a diverse selection of speech generating devices.
Our goal is to loan these devices to eligible customers who have a severe or greater speech impairment. Due to limited funding, we will provide SGDs on a “first come, first serve” basis, and there may be a delay between your application being approved and receiving your device.
Before you submit your application for a speech generating device, we encourage you to take the following steps:
- Explore the possibility of obtaining a SGD through private insurance, Medicaid or Medicare,
- Work with your speech-language pathologist in selecting the SGD that best meets your needs, and
- Contact the manufacturers for assistance in selecting a SGD. (Manufacturer websites are listed below.)
Please work with your speech-language pathologist to complete a TDAP SGD Application.
We look forward to working with you.
