They Don't Outgrow It: Serving Adults on the Autism Spectrum

Beginning with an overview of Autism Spectrum Disorder, the workshop will progress into facilitating smooth transitions from the Children's Room through Young Adult and Adult services. Ideas and tips will be presented for every department - from Reference to Circulation, Programming to Technical Services.

Outcomes:
Better understanding of the potential motivation behind Autistic behaviors;
Great insight into communicating with individuals on the spectrum;
and concrete ways to make the Library more disability-friendly.

Presented by Virginia Rogers, Director of the John Curtis Free Library in Hanover, MA. Funded by the Friends of the Hamilton-Wenham Public Library.
