We Need (Neuro)Diverse Books

According to the CDC, 1 in 6 children have been diagnosed with a mental, behavioral, or developmental condition such as autism. Most of us already serve these patrons in our libraries! How can we update our collections to better represent this diverse group? How can our programming promote empathy and acceptance? An autistic librarian will share strategies, book recommendations, and resources to help you keep up with this growing subsection of children's literature. Session recorded during the 2021 AASL National Conference.
