Produced by the Educational Programming and Outreach Department at Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in the US, Arthur’s Communication Adventure: Exploring Inclusion and Accessibility is a lesson plan about different communication systems for kids under 10 . Activities in the lesson include student reflection on how being visually impaired or hard of hearing may impact one’s ability to communicate or write, and how braille and American sign-language can fill in this gap. Arthur’s Communication Adventure also provides options for teachers to use specific episodes of Arthur in which characters that are hard of hearing or visually impaired are introduced. Also included are suggestions for further reading, group presentation ideas, and homework activities.
