The Dorothy Bramlage Public Library has a new storytime program for families in Geary County. Kaleidoscope Storytime is specifically designed for children with autism and sensory processing challenges.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disorder that can cause social, communication and behavioral challenges. Sensory processing challenges occur when the brain has difficulty receiving and responding to information that occurs through one's senses.
The storytime program is open to children ages 2 to 6. Children will be read stories and participate in telling a story through the Library's flannel storyboard. Children are given a picture rom the story read to them and are able to put the picture on the flannel storyboard. That helps the child with comprehension by being part of the story.
Kaleidoscope Storytime is on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 10 a.m.
