All children deserve access to library programs and services that will help them reach their potential. In this workshop participants will learn from 30 year veteran Wendy Kirschner how to structure storytimes and other programs for children with special needs. Topics include technologies to assist children with physical disabilities, practical activities for students on the autism spectrum, and tips for librarians on collaborating with experts to better serve these patrons in our libraries.

This workshop is part of the Media Smart Libraries program which was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services Grant # LG-07-14-0045-14 and awarded to the URI Graduate School of Library and Information Studies.
