Abstract: It is estimated that 1 in 54 people are autistic. Many of us are already serving autistic patrons in our library! How can we update our collections to better serve this growing population? With neurodiverse books, we can share stories about characters with conditions like autism, ADHD, dyslexia, Tourette Syndrome, and more. Come learn about the latest books by neurodivergent authors, and leave with resources that will help you keep up with this growing subsection of children’s literature.

Short Abstract: A librarian and advocate with a personal interest in serving neurodiverse students will share the latest books by neurodiverse authors. Leave with resources to help you develop your collection.
