As part of their on-going commitment to Autism Speaks, Ragdoll, Inc., creators of the Teletubbies, will include a full page dedicated to autism awareness in the new Together Time with Teletubbies: A Guide for Grandparents. Grandparents, who play an integral role in the development of young children, can learn about autism as they learn about the Teletubbies.
The guide encourages and educates grandparents on how best to interact with their grandchildren while they are
watching the Teletubbies. 100,000 copies of the guide will be distributed nationally in English and Spanish through PBS stations for use at workshops and local events. The inclusion of Autism Speaks, its mission, and the signs of autism, will help raise awareness among grandparents, and point grandparents to autismspeaks.org for more information.
Plus, learn more about the Teletubbies awareness and fundraising efforts and see photos from the Teletubbies visit to New York Cityin March of 2007.
