LLAM Autism Program Recap

We had a great turnout for our Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the Library Setting event on March 28th! In this program, Trish Kane and Neal Lichter of Pathfinders for Autism offered LLAM members an understanding of ASD. Trish and Neal used experiential exercises, shared personal experiences, and presented library-based scenarios to provide attendees with considerations and strategies for working with and serving individuals with ASD.

You can learn more about ASD and Pathfinders for Autism on their website: http://www.pathfindersforautism.org/.
