Subject: Adaptive Programming Survey

Do you offer programming for special needs?  If so, than the Library of Michigan & the Special Needs Services Rountable (SNSR) would like to hear from you!  Please take a few minutes to complete this form by Friday, June 9th: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SNSR17

Many libraries now demonstrate an inclusive awareness of autism, ADHD, dyslexia and other different neurological and physical needs in their services. Sensory story times, book discussions utilizing multiple formats, volunteer programs for teens and adults with special needs, and before/after-hours sensory-friendly programs are all wonderful examples of adapted inclusion. We want to know what wonderful program your library is offering to patrons with different needs. Perhaps your library offers an inclusive or targeted story time using a visual schedule and multisensory- engaging tools for those with developmental delays (but also great for English Language Learning (ELL) families!)? Are you reaching out to teens or adults reading at a lower level by offering a book discussion using hi-low titles?  Maybe you offer titles available in multiple formats to include those with visual impairments or dyslexia in your book discussions? Turning the lights up and the sound down for a sensory-friendly movie night?

Please let us know, so we can share these great ideas across the state.  Questions about the survey?  Please feel free to contact me at lancasterc5 at michigan.gov<mailto:lancasterc5 at michigan.gov> or Jen Taggart (SNSR Chair) with the Bloomfield Township Public Library at taggartj at btpl.org<mailto:taggartj at btpl.org>.
