We are loving the episode of Pablo on CBeebies today!
It’s so lovely that there are shows like this on television. Today they covered the anxiety about going out and having to stay away from people. They mention how things have changed, and also share the autistic experience through flapping, dancing to the colours from music, the sensory overload from supermarkets, the difficulties in identifying feelings and dealing with change.
I love the pacing characters, the echolalia and repetitions…then the explicit references over how to self regulate and calm down. I also love the questions and discussions between characters, all communicating Pablo’s streams of consciousness.
Quite a genius show I think. Very imaginative in its presentation. For example, exploring things that make Pablo ‘feel sparkly’.
