Arthur Explores Asperger’s Syndrome! [VIDEO Details]

NEWS | | March 30, 2010 at 9:35 pm

George introduces us to Carl >

Updated 04/02/2012 [new video]


With one in 150 kids being diagnosed with being on the Autism Spectrum understanding, while we seek for answers, is of utmost importance. Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism, is addressed in an episode of Arthur, which will be broadcast on Monday April 5th on PBS Kids.

I liked the no judgement or preaching approach that was chosen to handle the topic. So much is being done to mainstream kids yet this takes time and in the mean time we cannot just shunt kids out of sight. It is important that everyone, especially kids, be educated about differences that are sometimes not so easy to understand. While disabilities involving wheelchairs etc are still being tailored into children’s shows, I had yet to see a children’s show approach this sensitive topic. Yet sensitivity is exactly how it was approached.

“When Carl Met George” is the title of the episode and addresses things like abstract sentences, intense sensitivity to certain things and need for order. I honestly appreciated the comparison of landing on a foreign planet and not understanding what was happening around them. To a child with Autism or Aspergers Syndrome the world can sometimes be viewed as scary or challenging. April is Autism month so this is a wonderful way to introduce the subject to children.

*Disclosure: I received a screener copy of this episode to review!

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

    In this great scheme of things you get a B- for hard work. Where exactly you confused me personally was first on the particulars. You know, they say, the devil is in the details… And that could not be more correct right here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you just what exactly did deliver the results. The text is incredibly convincing and this is probably why I am taking the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, despite the fact that I can notice a leaps in logic you make, I am not confident of just how you seem to connect the ideas which inturn produce the final result. For the moment I shall subscribe to your point but hope in the future you link your facts better.
