Linda
Could you start a post on ...
"Technology Resources for Children with Disabilities"

I (and others) can then leave some relevant links and comments

Thanks for the suggestion. I've started a discussion thread on that topic. Do you know about Closing the Gap?

Could you start a thread on books that represent children with disabilities? I had a woman come in looking for a book for preschoolers on this topic and all the books on our shelves were too "text-y" except of course, wonderful Mr. Rogers, who had a book about "Extraordinary Friends."

BTW, thanks for creating this blog. How exciting to have a resource/forum of this type!

I am a Public Librarian in a large suburban library. I work in the Children's Dept half-time and in Cataloguing half-time.

I will see what I can do to encourage people interested in storytelling and children with disabilities to participate in the blog or to connect with each other in some other wy. Meanwhile, check the sections on storytelling in Walling and Karrenbrock, Disabilities, Children and Libraries as well as Coy Hunsucker's chapter in Walling and Irwin, Information Services for Children with Disabilities.
