Sensory Storytime Information

Each Regional Library System has a Autism Sensory Resources kit that can be circulated to regional librarians. These kits contain materials useful for creating a welcoming environment for patrons on the Autism Spectrum, such as fidgets and sensory stimulation toys, calming bottles and noise reduction headphones, and sample worry cards and program activities. The kits also contain educational materials to allow library staff to learn more about Autism Spectrum Disorder and advice for librarians interested in creating programs, such as Sensory Storytimes, for patrons with sensory disabilities.
