Need a better understanding of ASD? Schedule a training session at your library!

Posted on

As part of the Targeting Autism initiative, we offer training sessions to librarians and support staff throughout all types of libraries in Illinois at no cost.


Training topics can include:

 What is autism and why do I need to know about it?

 How do I make my library “Autism Friendly”?

 What kinds of accommodations might be necessary for my patrons with autism?

 Environmental concerns; lighting, noise

 Special library programming for students on the spectrum

Training can be customized to meet your specific needs.


Targeting Autism also provides no cost consultations to address individual questions or concerns, via phone, email or Skype.  This service is available to libraries within as well as outside of Illinois.
