KSL: Tips for Reading to Children with Special Needs

Sensory storytime at the Kearns Library

Tips for Reading with Children with Special Needs by Teri Harman, @TeriHarman, #Autism 

Several weeks ago I wrote a column about a local man with autism who started a free library for his neighborhood. Read: Spencer’s Book Bench.

After the article posted I was contacted by a librarian who puts on a sensory storytime for children with special needs at the Kearns Library. She offered me information about the storytime and help with a follow-up column.

I happily took her up on the offer!

This is librarian Carrie Rogers-Whitehead’s advice to parents who want to read at home to their children with special needs. Also included are book suggestions and information on local sensory storytimes.
