Toronto Public Library Social Story: Recruitment Survey

By Community, Events

Toronto Public Library is seeking children with disabilities and/or Deaf children and their families to share feedback on a social story draft – a simple picture book about visiting the library. They are seeking feedback from both library users and non-users. A social story outlines an experience from beginning to end so a child knows what to expect. Their goal is for children with a broad range of abilities to be represented and feel welcome in the library.

They are planning to consult with children 3–12 years and their families in October 2020. Participants must live in Toronto, Ontario. Please take a moment to give them your feedback so that TPL can better understand your consultation needs. The survey is short and should not take more than 10-15 minutes to complete.
