$ Developmentally Appropriate Programming for Youth (Infopeople)

If you work at a public library, there's a good chance that you're offering plenty of program options for youth from birth through grade 8. When it comes to designing and evaluating these programs, what resources and frameworks do you consult? Does developmentally appropriate programming, or DAP, factor into your plans and reflections? Developmentally appropriate programming identifies the program spaces, formats, content, and staffing models that equip libraries to offer high-impact programs designed precisely for the developmental levels of their intended audiences. The result is programming that best supports social/emotional development and achievement of developmental milestones.


This course will prepare youth services staff to:

  • Understand the optimal program space, format, content, and staffing to provide high-impact programs for targeted age groups.
  • Apply concepts of universal design and connected learning to existing programs.
  • Evaluate existing programs for developmental appropriateness and adapt program components to effectively reach multiple ages.
