Children's Sensory Story Time Support Group

Join us to learn about  sensory story times at RI pubIic libraries. We will be discussing how sensory programs have been developing at various libraries, sharing ideas and tips to help improve services to children with special needs, and welcoming new partnerships with local organizations (RI Consortium for Autism Research and Treatment and The Autism Project) that provide information and resources to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families.

The Sensory Story Time Support Group is a grassroots community of practice developed and faciliated by Maria Cotto at the Pawtucket Public Library and Babs Wells at the Greenville Public Library. The Sensory Storytime Support Group seeks to empower youth services librarians to better serve children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families by expanding programming, outreach, partnerships, and resources that welcome all abilities. For more information about the Sensory Storytime Support Group please contact Maria Cotto at mcotto@pawtucketlibrary.org.
