Synopsis

Autism is now the second most commonly diagnosed serious developmental disability, and the number of children identified as autistic continues to grow. Introducing what autism spectrum disorder is, and identifying the great need to build and manage programs for autistic youth, Farmer offers librarians in or outside a school environment all the information they need to build a library literacy program geared towards these children. Designed to both awaken sensitivities of library staff and address the questions of those who are already aware of the issue, this book Shows how autistic children are increasingly mainstreamed into traditional library and school programs and identifies the special needs and issues they face in a library setting Equips readers to meet the needs of young autistic library users with practical tools for training library staff, teachers, and volunteers Explains hyperlexia, the main barrier to the development of literacy among autistic children, and how programs using sensory experiences can strengthen both literacy skills and socialization Proposes strategies for using library design to ensure that materials and resources are accessible to all patrons Including a glossary of terms and bibliography of additional resources, Farmer's book is an important tool for raising awareness and supporting literacy development for autistic children in the library setting.
