Dinosaur Train

Buddy & his pal Dennis are off to Junior Conductor Academy!

April is Autism Awareness Month and PSB is re-airing, “Junior Conductors Academy” all month long. The episode in which Buddy and his siblings become friends with a dinosaur who knows a LOT MORE about dinosaurs than Buddy, but has some trouble making friends. Like all dinosaurs, their new friend Dennis Deinocheirus has his own dinosaur features. And, like all of us, he has strengths in some areas and challenges in others. Dinosaur Train has teamed up with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” initiative, aiming to improve early identification of children with autism and other developmental disabilities so children and families can get the services and support they need. Learn more at PBS Dinosaur Train.
