Strategies for Working with Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, September 11, 2019, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is one of the most commonly diagnosed developmental disabilities, and the number of children identified on the spectrum continues to grow. Working with children with ASD is a crucial skill in today’s public library environment.

Designed to help library staff understand a sensitive area and address the questions of those who are already aware of the issue, this webinar explores some basic strategies for working with children on the autism spectrum. ALA Publishing, in partnership with Mobile Therapy Centers, provides you with the background information you need to better serve children with ASD.

After participating in this event, you will:

  • Understand the common characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
  • Be familiar with strategies for communicating with children with ASD
  • Understand common “do’s & don’ts” when working with children with ASD
  • Understand the distinction between inclusive storytimes and dedicated sensory storytimes

While completing your purchase, fill in the name and e-mail address of the participant who will sign in to the event by clicking the "Attendees" button to the right of the item in your cart.
