A 30 minute television series like you’ve never seen before. It’s fun. . . It’s colorful. . . It’s magical. . . It’s musical. . . It’s educational. . . It teaches values and celebrates faith. . . And it does all that in three languages at once! Introducing Dr. Wonder’s Workshop – the first Christian television series ever produced where everyone uses American Sign Language! This program has been designed from the ground up to be the most accessible children’s educational TV series ever developed.
Not only will the show be voiced in English and captioned in English and Spanish, but every line, every song, every story will also be signed. For the first time, the 1.2 million Deaf children in America will be able to enjoy the show just as much as their hearing friends and family. So will other special needs children who are taught to use sign language, like Down Syndrome kids, or Autistic children, or other kids who find speech difficult. If ever there was a program designed to be sure that no child is left behind, this is it.
This program has everything you’ve come to expect in a high quality children’s educational television show – interesting stories with fun, colorful characters; creative original music; language development; and instruction on the importance of developing positive life values such as honesty, integrity and responsibility. But it also includes another dimension not found in most educational television. Dr. Wonder’s Workshop also address issues of faith. Every program will include a Bible story and an object lesson to show the children that God is just as relevant today as He ever was! The show will never be “preachy,” but in tender loving ways Dr. Wonder and his friends will unapologetically show the children that God knows them, He loves them, and they are precious to Him.
