Creating Inclusive Storytimes for ALL Children Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Thursday, February 23, 2017, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Creating an inclusive storytime is as important as creating an engaging one. And in this workshop, you’ll learn how to do both! Child development expert Carol Morrone will tie child development into storytelling, offering insight on working with children with special needs, including children affected by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and intellectual challenges. Useful for both school and public libraries, this workshop will provide you with the tools needed to build inclusive story hours that apply solid child development theory into practice. Examples will be offered using classic children's books and authors, and final suggestions will be given on how you can extend these techniques to foster an ongoing relationship with the library and learning. This workshop will empower you to transform traditional children's storytimes into vibrant and engaging experiences for the present generation of young learners.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Understand how targeted techniques can help to engage children with special needs, including children with ADHD, ASD, and intellectual challenges
  • Relate basic child development to techniques used in conducting a storytime with young children
  • Relate concepts to well-known children's books and authors
  • Extend techniques beyond storytime to foster an ongoing relationship with library and learning

Who Should Attend

Public and school librarians who are involved with children's storytimes will find this workshop highly useful.

Host

With over 30 years of experience, Carol Morrone has devoted her entire career to working with children and families. Carol is an independent consultant, providing professionals and parents with tools and resources needed to effectively work with children, integrating theory with practical applications. While working as a behavioral therapist with young children, Carol developed and presented a variety of workshop topics rooted in applied child development principles to both early childhood professionals and parents. Among other positive remarks, her practical application of solid theory has been called "current and useful" with "take-aways that are practical and ready to use tomorrow." In October 2016, she launched her website KIDapp.org to share her knowledge and expertise with a wider audience. Carol can be reached through her website or by email.
