Autism and Storytime

The Association for Library Service to Children's blog published this post about adapting traditional library storytimes to suit the specialized needs of kids with autism. I was especially interested in the use of picture cards to explain the storytime pattern to kids.

With the rise in autism and autism spectrum disorders (see the Autism Society of America's fact page for more information), this is definitely something children's librarians need to be thinking about.
