Autism and Libraries
The folks at the Scotch Plains Public Library and the Fanwood Memorial Library, have put together an excellent training program to help public libraries better serve people with Autism Spectrum Disorders, called Libraries and Autism: We're Connected. This program includes a training video for library staff as well as customizable handouts for patrons and a training workshop with supporting materials. Also included are links to great resources for parents such as Autism Speaks: First 100 Days kit. This program is a great resource for parents and librarians alike!
