Barbara Klipper

Barbara Klipper has been involved with people with autism since 1986, when the first of her two sons to have this disorder was diagnosed. She and her husband were founding parents of Giant Steps, a school for children with autism in Fairfield, Connecticut. In 2002 she was asked to develop the Special Needs Center collection for The Ferguson Library in Stamford, Connecticut, and since then she has been able to combine her interests in librarianship and service to children with disabilities. She developed The Ferguson Library's grant-funded sensory storytime program, and she has presented at conferences and trained librarians from around the country in autism awareness and sensory storytime programming. An active member of the American Library Association, she has chaired the Library Services for Special Population Children and Their Caregivers Committee and served on the Schneider Family Book Award jury and the ALA Accessibility Assembly.

Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC)

For more than eight decades, librarians from the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) have intensely scrutinized the children's books published each year, selecting the winning and honor books for the Newbery and Caldecott Awards. In addition, the ALSC division of the ALA is committed to creating a nation of readers, starting with the youngest. ALSC supports all those providing library services to children, including youth librarians, teachers, families, literature experts, publishers, and child advocates.
