Will you be tuning in?

“Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum,” an animated series on PBS Kids will feature an animated Temple Grandin on their episode that will air on Monday 4/5/21 on PBS Kids. Check your local listings.

Temple Grandin is one of the leading autism advocates in the world and herself is on the autism spectrum. If you haven’t heard of Temple, we first met when we were both keynoting in Memphis about our journeys growing up autistic. A few years later I would win the Temple Grandin Award.

In addition to Temple’s character getting an appearance for Autism Acceptance Month, Ben is another autistic character that has been featured on this specific animated series. You can read more about the story here.

This isn’t the first time PBS Kids has featured a character on the autism spectrum. I recently blogged about PBS Kids featuring an autistic character on Daniel Tiger and before that had I the opportunity to chat with Christine Ferraro, Co-Creator and Head Writer of Hero Elementary who feature AJ Gadgets, an autistic superhero on their show. You can watch the interview I did with Christine above.

I applaud PBS Kids for their continued work here as an autism entertainment consultant who understands the true importance of representation. Growing up with autism, the only entertainment projects I knew about that featured an autistic character included Rain Man. I’m glad more of the spectrum is now getting to be spotlighted. You can learn more about my work as an autism consultant here on projects such as Joyful Noise, Jane Wants A Boyfriend and Mrs. Fletcher and how I can help you with your next project by contacting me here. You can check out my new e-book Autistic Characters That Are Featured On Netflix, Disney+ & More! here.

It’s also helpful to have representation in projects that are for younger children because, if we can educate our loved ones about autism at an early age hopefully they will be more understanding and accepting of autistic individuals for their entire lives. That’s a big reason why I wrote a children’s book about twins on the autism spectrum that you can learn more about here.
