Chat with Jana – Sensory Story Kits

November 17, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Children with blindness and visual impairments face unique literacy challenges. Sensory story kits can act as an bridge to emergent literacy for children who approach literacy with little or no sight. Sensory story kits combine print/braille books with tactile items to provide children with enhanced context.

Erica McCaleb, County-wide Services Coordinator for the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative, will show in this webinar ways to explore the special considerations for creating content for children with blindness and visual impairments and tips for libraries on how they can create their own sensory story kits.

Librarians who engage with children and teens are encouraged to bring questions and topics to discuss. Because these meetings are interactive, you are encouraged (but not required) to have a microphone or to call in by phone. Chat is available.
