Project PALS, an IMLS funded collaboration between autism experts and librarians, created four online training modules to teach librarians about how to best provide services for patrons with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These trainings are now available on Webjunction, and initial data reveals how librarians who have taken the modules plan to implement recommendations into their libraries to best serve members of this population. Presenters will discuss practical solutions for public libraries to implement in their own locations, as well as the most popular suggestions for implementation as chosen by librarians and library staff who have taken the full trainings.
