    Four training modules are centred around making the library accessible for people with autism. The course includes research-based checklists, examples of materials, tip sheets, lists, and templates to implement best practices in your unique library setting. This self-paced course is free to all library workers and volunteers if you create an OCLC account. At an estimated 4 hours, it should be something that library staff could spread out through a week of someone’s paid hours.

    The information is summarized from the Project Pals: College Of Communication & Information website.
