Get Creative and Kids Will Come

Sensory Storytime involves children in varying stages of sensory development and/or on the autism spectrum who might otherwise find storytime too challenging or overwhelming. This session will talk about the elements of a strong, inclusive Sensory Storytime, including suggested resources and activities, and how to promote your program to reach the right families. We will also discuss methods for encouraging families to keep coming back, since having young children with special‐needs may create barriers to participating in library programs.
