Serving Children with Disabilities in Libraries: A Beginner’s Guide

Where should I begin? This can sometimes be the most challenging part about developing library services to children with disabilities.  In fact, the most common question I receive is about where to start.  While there isn’t a one-stop-shop when it comes to expanding your knowledge in this area, I’m pleased to say that there is a plethora of resources out there that can help you on your journey to becoming an advocate for children with disabilities.  Basically, what that means is that the first step is to learn.  And you’re in luck–here are some of my favorite resources to help you do just that!

Books We are librarians, after all.  So, read we must!

Articles Because sometimes you don’t have time to read an entire book.

 Webinars & Videos Because some of us are visual and auditory learners.

Blogs & Websites Being a librarian means being a student throughout your entire career.  These help you keep up with the latest information.
