When Carl met George: #Aspergers explained for children


This episode of Arthur is from the 13th series and first aired in 2010.


This short clip highlights some of the main traits of Asperger’s Syndrome.



Here’s the full episode where George first meets Carl, who happens to have Asperger’s Syndrome.

  • George is very considerate towards Carl
  • This is a very powerful portrayal of respect for those with differences
  • Could be a very effective anti-bullying film in schools?

    As a therapist working with both children and adults with Aspergers, I’m always on the lookout for resources to explain Aspergers in simple and powerful ways. Another resource you might enjoy is Kathy Hoopman’s newest book, Inside Aspergers Looking Out.
