Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Another Terrific Early Literacy Resource!

There is so much good stuff out there!  I found a reference to this in the Growing Wisconsin Readers Blog, but wanted to make sure everyone saw it.  For those of you who put so much work and effort into educating yourselves and adapting your storytime for kids on the autism spectrum, and for everyone who is interested in finding out more about how to make your services relevant to kids with developmental disabilities and their families, check this out!

Reach Out and Read created the Developmental Disabilities Literacy Promotion Guide for Pediatric Healthcare Providers.  It has terrific information for librarians, too, about what kinds of books to use and recommend, suggestions for adapting reading sessions for kids with a variety of specific disabilities, and handouts for parents.  Very user-friendly and easy to read--check it out!
