Sensory Story Time

WHAT: Along with other libraries across the country, the Lakewood Public Library in Ohio is rolling out "Sensory Story Time". The program caters to young children with autism or other special needs by limiting the group size, providing a "fidget toy", and incorporating interactive elements.

SO WHAT: With autism on the rise (a fact mentioned in the linked story), a program like this does make a lot of sense. It is also inclusive - open to any kid who struggles to focus during standard story time.
