           Welcoming Library Programs for the Special Needs Community and Their Families.



Library personnel will learn how to develop and execute library programs that invite special needs children and typically developing children to participate together.  This program is an outgrowth of the INFOLINK initiative "Welcoming Library Spaces for the Autism Community and their families."  It is geared towards responding to the challenge of NJ residents whose children have been diagnosed on the autism spectrum and other high functioning children who are participating in inclusion programs in their public schools.
