Summary:
Whether you work in a public, school, or hospital library, some of your young patrons have disabilities. Ramps, adaptive technology, and Braille books lay only the physical basis for including them into the library. Segregating them because of their disabilities is detrimental to their development, and to society as a whole. Serving them, and their families, involves educating yourself on the issues they face on a daily basis.
