Library Service for All: Current Trends in Library Programs and Services for Autistic Children and Teens

Tuesday, June 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Register for this one-hour webinar.

In this webinar we will discuss what autism is through the lens of neurodiversity, and how characteristics of autism may manifest in the library environment. We will focus on education and acceptance for librarians and library staff, so that our autistic patrons and autism families feel welcomed into a supportive environment. We will also discuss ways libraries across the United States are implementing best practices to better serve members of this community.

Additionally, we will share some shifts in school library practices in order to respond to the needs of our autistic student and provide some examples and outcomes from Project Enable involvement.

At the end of this webinar, attendees will:

  • Develop or deepen their awareness of what it means to be autistic
  • Become familiar with current trends in library programing and services for children and teens with autism, including how technology is being used for these purposes
  • Learn strategies for incorporating the voices of individuals with autism when planning library programs and services
