Special and general educators rely on the school library for many reasons, such as the wealth of resources that are used to motivate students and individualize instruction and the fact that many students with disabilities enjoy spending time there (Smith-Canter, Voytecki, Zambone, and Jones 2009). In the June 2009 issue of "School Library Media Activities Monthly," Helen R. Adams discussed the legal and ethical mandates for school librarians to serve students with special needs (54). While school librarians may not always have a great deal of training and support to accommodate students with disabilities, they have historically welcomed this group of students. This article is designed to provide school librarians with an overview of the types of challenges faced by students with special needs, and global suggestions for addressing some of those challenges within the context of the school library program.
