- May 31 - King Library Opens at 1:00 PM
Every branch of the San José Public Library offers a monthly Inclusive Story Time. At the West Valley Branch it is held on the fourth Saturday of each month at 2 pm. This is a story time especially designed to provide support for children with special needs and is also suitable for all children to attend. At an inclusive story time you will find the same great stories, songs, rhymes and activities that you love at all our story times. The addition of supports like carpet squares, a story time schedule and big books make the story time more enjoyable for kids with autism and other special needs.
If you are looking for more information on help for kids with special needs, Parents Helping Parents is a San Jose parent-directed resource center for children and adults with special needs. The Inclusion Collaborative, part of the Santa Clara County Office of Education, focuses on the inclusion of children with special needs in child care, preschool and the community. At their website you can learn how to find support and information to include children with disabilities in your program or community.
