Presented by Executive Director Mr. Matt Mazur of

AutismFriendlyShows.com and Turtle Dance Music, LLC

AutismFriendlyShows.com and Turtle Dance Music will present a fantastic, interactive musical Sensory-Storytime and Technical “How-To” Professional Development Webinar over Zoom for librarians, administrators, teachers and parents. Bring all of your tech issues and questions and we will present solutions! We will demonstrate software, hardware and technology for livestreaming, green screen tips, instruments, and music technology for librarians to share in their programming. This hands-on workshop will cover topics ranging from trends in libraries for virtual programming, hands-on demonstrations for potential user-friendly musical activities in your library, promotional suggestions for wording of fliers, managing meltdowns, following the children's strengths and a whole range of practical topics that will also be covered. We will also share strategies and tactics for running sensory-friendly programs digitally and quick hacks for setting up virtual events. Librarians will benefit from the engaging materials, hands-on activities and abundance of take-home materials. Turtle Dance Music has developed their guidelines through graduate work and through our experiences collaborating with thousands of children, teens and adults with developmental disabilities as well as teachers, parents and administrators.
