Creating Sensory-Friendly Library Experiences for Children With Disabilities
Public libraries have a mission to serve and include all members of the community, including teens and children with disabilities. In this half-day workshop, attendees will gain background knowledge about autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and the concept of creating sensory-friendly programs and spaces. Participants will learn how to develop a Sensory Storytime program, learn about other program ideas for youth with ASD and their families, and acquire strategies for making their existing programs more inclusive for youth of all abilities. Librarian and accessibility advocate Renee Grassi will help you learn more about this topic and will share best practices for community engagement with local disability partners, as well as tips for inclusive marketing. Light breakfast and drinks will be provided. To register, click the registration button below.
