On Wednesday, November 13th and 20th from 11:30 to 1:00 Pacific each day, ALA is offering a 2-part online workshop called Serving Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Autism is now the second most commonly diagnosed serious developmental disability, and the number of children identified as autistic continues to grow. In this workshop, Dr. Lesley Farmer will take you through the basics of autism, explaining the forms the condition can take and how diagnosed children tend to be unique. You will learn the library-specific challenges of dealing with this population, as well as best practices for both interacting with the children one-on-one and making the library environment as a whole more friendly. You will learn about resources and instructional strategies for dealing with this population… Once you register, you will be given very simple instructions that will help you ensure that you have the proper software and capabilities on your computer to run this event.
The workshop will be taught by Lesley S. J. Farmer. She authored a book called Library Services for Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder which is available for ILL from the State Library.
