Using these imaginative programs, they will get all children—with and without autism and sensory processing disorder—learning, moving, and in sync." —Carol Kranowitz, author, The Out-of-Sync ChildThose who understand the unique sensitivities of young people with autism spectrum disorder, now the second most commonly diagnosed serious developmental disability, know that ordinary library programming guides are not up to the task of effectively serving these library users. Klipper has presented at conferences and trained librarians from around the country in autism awareness, and the grant-funded Sensory Storytime programming she developed at The Ferguson Library in Stamford, Connecticut is a model for reaching children with autism spectrum disorder. Her complete programming guide, ideal for audiences ranging from preschool through school-age children, teens, and families, Provides background information on the disorder to help librarians understand how to program for this special audienceFeatures step-by-step programs from librarians across the country, adaptable for both public and school library settingsSuggests methods for securing funding and establishing partnerships with community organizationsIncludes a list of additional resources that will prove valuable to librarians and parents/caregivers alikeKlipper’s deep knowledge and experience on the subject makes her guidance on serving these library users and their families invaluable.Table of ContentsForewordAcknowledgmentsIntroductionChapter 1 What Is Autism?Chapter 2Decisions and Best PracticesChapter 3Preparing Storytime Programs: What You Need to KnowChapter 4 Storytime Program ModelsChapter 5 Programming for School-age ChildrenChapter 6 Programming for TeensChapter 7Programming for FamiliesChapter 8 Programming in School LibrariesAppendix A: ResourcesAppendix B: Books and Related Sensory ActivitiesAppendix C: Rhymes and Related Sensory ActivitiesAppendix D: Keys to a Successful Library VisitIndexAbout the AuthorBarbara 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.Praise for Programming for Children and Teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder"I thoroughly enjoyed reading your book ... As you described various activities it brought back names of students that I had worked with who would have loved them. I used to be a Special Education teacher ... I can also envision using your suggested books as part of their classroom library to meet specific common core goals in literature."--Cathy Baker, Media Specialist, Danbury Connecticut Public Schools "I just finished reviewing your book and all I can say is ---wow! You really have done an outstanding job. I think you covered and explained everything really well. I learned some things and can't think of anything I would add. It was really encouraging to hear about some of the programs that have sprung up since I researched my first presentation [on this topic]. If I were back in a public library, I would begin trying out your ideas today!"--Heather Dieffenbach, Children's and Youth Services Consultant, Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives
