Targeting Autism: Helping Libraries Support the Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) Community

The Illinois State Library was awarded an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) National Leadership Forum Grant to help libraries better serve patrons and family members impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). According to the latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 1 in 68 children have been identified with ASD nationwide. This project explores how libraries can work with diverse community organizations and programs to address the topic of ASD, through training, education and support services.
