Autism in the Library

By Donna DiMichele | November 6, 2015

Assisting Persons with Autism

Librarians can learn best practices and thoughtful ways to assist individuals with autism who are using the library. Project PALS was developed by Florida State University’s College of Communications and Information.  The online course, designed by experts in both the library and autism fields, is a series of four independent, self-paced instructional modules that are intended for librarians and library staff to learn how to better serve their users on the autism spectrum.

You can find information about the course and other resources at https://pals.cci.fsu.edu/

PALS is funded by a Laura Bush Professional Development grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
