Kids & Autism


Sat. 4/24 9a: This time on The Children’s Hour we learn about autism from a father and son who literally wrote the book about it for kids. Justin and David Flood wrote the book A Kids Book About  Autism to help kids understand what autism is, how it impacts people, and how kids without autism can befriend kids with autism.  

We also hear from renowned scientist with autism, Temple Grandin who has a list of things she wish she knew when she was younger. 

Then Maya Falcón from our Kids Crew interviews Dr. Walter Dehority, Associate Professor of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of New Mexico, to learn about the Covid vaccine for kids. We’ve got great music on this show and lots of information for kids of all ages.
