As the autistic population continues to grow and become more visible across the lifespan, it’s important that libraries of all types know how to effectively serve patrons on the autism spectrum, foster a neurodiverse profession by encouraging autistics to consider librarianship as a career, and successfully employ them as staff. This webinar will provide attendees with a mix of practical strategies and relevant anecdotes from an autistic librarian. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and share any helpful insights they may have on the topic.
