Description: 

Sensory Storytime is a program specifically designed for children with autism and other PDD.  Our community has asked for this kind of programming for quite a long time, but until now, we have not had the ability to offer it.  In this session, we will go through the process that led us to being able to offer a Sensory Storytime program at our library.  We will share the kinds of partners and professionals who guided us with their expertise and knowledge of autism and PDD.  We will also take participants through a Sensory Storytime to show what this program could look like in your library.  We offer tips of what worked and what didn’t and encourage participants to let us help them learn how to offer this program in their libraries.
