Proceedings of the 50th Annual Conference of the International Association of School Librarianship and the 23rd International Forum on Research in School Librarianship
50th Annual Conference of the International Association of School Librarianship and the 25th International Forum on Research in School Librarianship, July 11-15, 2022, Columbia, South Carolina
With prevalence most recently reported at 1 in 44 (Maenner et al., 2021) children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the United States, school librarians can and should expect to see these children in their schools and in their libraries. However, previous work indicates that school librarians are not being provided with an adequate education about this in their graduate coursework (Layden, Anderson, & Hayden, 2021). This study expands upon previous work to explore the preparation of school librarians about autism by examining the previous five years of state library conference programs.
