Understanding and Assisting Library Patrons on the Autism Spectrum
Present across racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups across the lifespan, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is estimated to affect 1 in 59 children in the U.S. Librarians are therefore likely to encounter patrons who are "on the spectrum" and require at least some modifications in their library use due to communication, sensory integration, and other challenges. This workshop will provide librarians in school, public, and academic settings with a greater understanding of ASD as well as strategies for making your library spaces more accessible and other key ways to better serve this patron group.
