ABIQ, in conjunction with Noah's Ark Resource Centre, has created a Resource Library tailored specifically to ABA programs.
What resources are available?
The resources contained within the ABA Resource Library are restricted to ABIQ members only, cover all levels of programs and include:
A complete list of available items can be viewed on this web site at resource list. A print-friendly version of this list is also available on the web.
How do I access materials?
ABIQ Members will be required to join Noah's Ark Toy Library by completing the special Noah's Ark/ABIQ Membership Application form and paying a reduced fee of $60 (which consists of an annual $50 membership and a one off $10 carrybag hire). This entitles ABIQ members to full use of Noah's Ark resources as well as ABIQ's resources. ABIQ Members will be issued with a membership card each year and your member number must be recorded on your membership application form. The membership card for the current financial year MUST BE SHOWN EACH TIME you wish to borrow materials from the ABIQ resources.
The materials are housed within the Noah's Ark Resource Centre located in inner city Brisbane but will also be available to members outside the metropolitan area through Noah's Arks' mobile unit and isolated families programs. (Please contact Noah's Ark for more information about these outreach services.) Visits to the Noah's Ark Resource Centre are by appointment only.
How many items can I borrow?
If in a borrowing session you wish to borrow items from both the ABIQ and Noah's Ark resources, you can loan:
If in a borrowing session you wish to borrow items only from the Noah's Ark resources, their normal quantities apply:
NB. Noah's Ark Resource Centre also has some great large items (eg. play centres, Little Tykes Cars and Trucks, kitchen pretend play units etc.) that are available for 1 month at $10/month. These are the only items for which there is an additional cost.
All items can be borrowed for a maximum period of one month, however items can be swapped more regularly if required. Families participating through the isolated families program can borrow items for two months. Please contact Noah's Ark Resource Centre for more details.
