From there, I would show the student where books on a particular topic (Ex. submarines) were or go ahead and pull several prior to the library time. In addition, a couple of the students wanted to keep their books longer than the allowed time or vice versa - wanted to switch immediately after looking at all of the pictures. This required patience and flexibility on my part - something many librarians may not possess. I also ordered tons of Ebooks and audiobooks for my ASD students. Many of them liked reading from an iPad or listening to a book, so this was essential to providing material they wanted to use.
