ARTHUR Features Topical Episodes for Autism Awareness Month in April

Posted by SDPB on
Carl and George in the ARTHUR epsisode "Carl's Concerto."

This year for Autism Awareness Month, Arthur features episodes with Carl, a character on the Autism spectrum, during the first week of April. 

The all new episode “Carl’s Concerto” premieres on SDPB on April 6. 

If you have an Arthur fan or two in the family, the brand new web feature, FAMILY HISTORY FUN, offers a simple way for kids to interview family members about their own childhoods. Through a fun geneology exercise, they can learn about relatives’ nicknames, pets, favorite books, and much more. One-page interviews kids create (printed, or saved to a mobile device’s photo gallery) can be keepsakes for families! 

You can keep up on SDPB children’s and educational programing schedules here, or watch a wide variety of PBS KIDS shows with the PBS KIDS app.
