Inclusion is Expansion: Creating content that spans the spectrum

One in 59 children in the US are estimated to have autism, and many more are growing up under the radar. At home, in the classroom and on the playground, children encounter a rich variety of cognitive styles and experiences. But neurodiversity remains under-represented in their entertainment landscape. Through the lens of autism and discussing specific strategies for kids media operatives, we will explore the challenges and opportunities involved in creating linear and digital content that is “born-accessible.”
