More than 3.5 million American live with
an autism spectrum disorder. The CDC estimates 1 in 68 US school children fall
within the autism spectrum. An even greater number of children are impacted by
developmental delays and/or disabilities.


Families impacted both by autism and
developmental disabilities live in communities of all sizes. Providing
programming for this demographic is an impactful way for the library to be an
inclusive and supportive resource for families.


In this interactive webinar program, Jill
Burket Ragase will give you a variety of tools that you will be able to use to:



Select program appropriate titles and
activities for Sensory Storytimes


Present and adapt programs for multiple
ages/audiences as well as programming area/library sizes


Create and deliver programs that allow
children to continue learning and skill building beyond storytime.


Enhance storytime inclusion.


Learn the ins and outs of presenting a
sensory storytime from an experienced librarian who also happens to parent a
