Those who understand the unique sensitivities of young people with autism spectrum disorder, now the second most commonly diagnosed serious developmental disability, know that ordinary library programming guides are not up to the task of effectively serving these library users. Klipper has presented at conferences and trained librarians from around the country in autism awareness, and the grant-funded Sensory Storytime programming she developed at The Ferguson Library in Stamford, Connecticut is a model for reaching children with autism spectrum disorder. Her complete programming guide, ideal for audiences ranging from preschool through school-age children, teens, and families, 

  • Provides background information on the disorder to help librarians understand how to program for this special audience
  • Features step-by-step programs from librarians across the country, adaptable for both public and school library settings
  • Suggests methods for securing funding and establishing partnerships with community organizations
  • Includes a list of additional resources that will prove valuable to librarians and parents/caregivers alike
Klipper’s deep knowledge and experience on the subject makes her guidance on serving these library users and their families invaluable.
