PBS Highlights Autism-Friendly Broadway Performances

December 23, 2013



The Theatre Development Fund's Autism Theatre Initiative began in 2011 and organizes autism-friendly performances of Broadway shows for kids and adults on the spectrum. PBS' Newshour program attended the latest autism-friendly performance of Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark in New York City to find out how these shows are tailored for their unique audience.
