School Libraries Supporting Learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Feb 21, 2017 12:00am

Credits: None available.

Members: $0.00
Standard: $6.99


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a triad of impairments which affect an individual’s social, communicative, and behavioral development. Any child can be diagnosed with ASD regardless of race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status, but it is more prevalent among boys than girls. School librarians can help learners with ASD by providing a safe, informal learning environment that supports academic pursuits, facilitates technology use, creates social opportunities, distributes interest-based material and media, and creates a bridge between the student and his or her teachers. Based on research, this webinar provides practical suggestions for activities and examples of technology that school librarians can use to support students with ASD.

Learning Objectives:
  • Attendees will be able to recognize the characteristics of students with ASD.
  • Attendees will be able to identify technologies that can be used to support students with ASD.
  • Attendees will be able to develop learning activities for students with ASD.
