These four trainings will be offered from February through May to help your staff gain skills to create more inclusive spaces where individuals with developmental disabilities can better access our important community assets. There is no cap to the number of staff and  each staff member will receive a certificate of completion that shows they have learned evidence-based strategies in supporting the autism community. 


Successfully Serving Patrons with Autism at your Library - for Librarians 
February 25, 2021 from 11:30AM - 1PM

Public Libraries are an important resource in the community for children and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities (ID/DD) and on the autism spectrum.  In this workshop, library staff will learn how to support patrons with autism using library services.   Staff will be able to explain what patrons might have ID/DD and/or autism and how to meet their needs.  Participants will be shown how to provide simple accommodations or supports to enhance services for these individuals and their families.  Strategies to decrease challenging behaviors and long-term supports in the community for staff will be shared. Library staff will be able to create a more inclusive and welcoming space for patrons.
