Anyone head of a cartoon called Dino Squad. They had an eppisode with a boy with AS in it. Can't find the whole thing but here's a clip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkml4yFS-aA

I saw that episode. Personally, I don't think it was an accurate AS depiction, relying somewhat on the old Rain Man ethics.

I didn't like it that much either, I was just thankful they didn't make him into a math genius. That is the one sterotype that has got to go. I wish more popular kid's shows like Arthur would do an AS eppisode. There's this rabit girl who dosen't have a name or say anything because she's just a background character. She wears a long skirt and a pink/blue stripped shirt. I think they should take her and make her to represent AS. There's another rabit that is a background character, but his clothes don't seem like something someone with severe sensory issues would wear. The rabbit girl's do. Now if PBS would do research possibly come here and ask what they want the youth to know about AS, I think it would work.
