Programming through Partnership for Adults with High-Functioning Autism & Asperger’s Syndrome

Date: Wednesday, November 11, 2015

Time: 9:30-11am

Location: Schaumburg Township District Library, 130 S. Roselle Road, Schaumburg IL

Join the Recharge Committee for a great panel discussion at the Schaumburg Township District Library on Wednesday, November 11.

The Center for Disease Control & Prevention reports that one in 68 children have autism—and the numbers are rising. As these kids turn 21, all of the supports and services they have been receiving under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act are no longer available.

Learn how the Schaumburg Township District Library implemented a successful series of programs targeted towards its adult patrons with ASD. Representatives from STDL’s community partners will talk about the specific needs of the ASD community and how public libraries can help fill some of the gaps in service.
