Disabilities: Home


This guide is primarily designed for library professionals who want to learn more about how to better support individuals with disabilities. However, many of these resources can be helpful for families, friends, educators, or anyone interested in learning more about disability. My hope is that this guide will promote sensitivity, inclusion, and a universal design outlook.

If you are interested specifically in Autism Spectrum Disorder, please check out my Autism Resources Guide for Librarians & Educators as well as my Autism Resources Guide for Parents & Caregivers.

Please feel free to share other resources and recommendations!
