Description: According to the CDC, 1 in 6 children have been diagnosed with a mental, behavioral, or developmental condition such as autism. Most of us already serve these patrons in our libraries! How can we update our collections to better represent this diverse group? How can our programming promote empathy and compassion? An autistic librarian will share some of her favorite #OwnVoices books, and you’ll leave with resources that will help you keep up with this growing subsection of children’s literature.
