Programming to Children with Special Needs

Posted on: October 23rd, 2012 by rose

Programming to Children with Special Needs with Angela Shugart, Sherry Huston and Wendy Ramsey.

The Columbus Metropolitan Library has been programming to children with special needs for over 20 years. Originally staffed by one librarian, the service now includes three librarians who conduct an average of 250 storytimes each month to special needs children from toddler to upper-elementary level. Angela Shugart (with Sherry Huston and Wendy Ramsey) will discuss what props, stories, songs and rhymes have been successful with this audience over the years. Sample programming plans and prop patterns will be provided.

Angela Shugart has worked for the Columbus Metropolitan Library, Ohio, for 15 years and on the Bookmobiles in Outreach Services for 13 years. She visits 17 buildings and presents storytimes to 42 special needs classes each month during the school year.
