April 8th Autism Tip- Arthur Addresses Asperger's

April is Autism Awareness Month, therefore, it is fitting that PBS chose this month to air its’ episode “When Carl Met George”. This episode’s storyline is about Asperger’s Syndrome and Friendship.

During their 13 seasons, viewers have met and followed the stories of characters with different abilities, interests and problems. This time, viewers will follow George as he gets acquainted with Carl who loves to draw trains and knows all kinds of cool facts about them! Viewers will learn that Carl has Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism, and that Carl sees the world a bit differently than George and many other kids. Children will be made aware of Carl’s intense sensitivity to certain things and need for order. Carl may be different but he is special and becomes his pal.

The show is followed by a live-action segment featuring kids with Asperger’s and autism. Viewers will learn about therapeutic horseback riding for kids with special needs,
