The Targeting Autism Project is partnering the Illinois State Library with The Autism Program (TAP) of Illinois to bring together an impressive group of national and regional ASD experts and advocates, who will help stimulate discussions and provide a platform for creating a statewide collaborative action plan to assist libraries in becoming more welcoming to and supportive of the needs of the ASD population.
The Illinois State Library is currently accepting applications to participate in the Targeting Autism Grant project forums. A total of eighty participants will be selected. If you or someone you know is passionate about supporting the Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) population and believes that libraries in collaboration with a wide variety of advocates have the power to improve the quality of lives of individuals and families impacted by ASD, we invite you participate in this very important initiative.
Submit an application to learn about the many ways libraries can support the large and growing population of all those affected by ASD. To apply, click: Targeting Autism: A National Forum on Serving Library Patrons on the Spectrum: Application to Participate
