All Star Storytime for Children with ASD
All Star Storytime is modeled after a traditional library preschool storytime with the addition of adapted/enhanced materials.
All Star Storytime is for preschool age children 3 - 5 years old, who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. A child must be accompanied by a parent or other primary caregiver, who will be an active participant with the child.
Our goal is to encourage and prepare families and children for participation in all age-appropriate library programs.
All Star Storytime is offered once a month, September – November and January - April.
Pre-registration will begin approximately 2 weeks before each session. Class size is limited to 8 children with ASD, and their caregiver/parent. For more information or to register for this free program, please call Public Library Services at the Alvin Sherman Library (954) 262-5477.
