Thank you for taking an interest in Run Jump Play. We’re grateful for those who show us the meaning of love and acceptance by meeting neurodiverse children for who they are. And we’re grateful the many individuals who have paved the way as advocates for neurodiversity.
As parents of two amazing neurodiverse children, we wanted to create a TV series that helped children, parents and caregivers know that they are not alone. We spent so much time feeling isolated and confused by our children's autism diagnosis. Neurodiversity is easily misunderstood because as the adage says, if you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism. We sought out programming for our kids that portrayed autism positively. What we found was a lot of stereotypes and misconceptions, and not a lot of nuance. We yearned for our children to see stories and characters on TV that shed light on how their brains were wired differently than neurotypical children. It just didn’t exist, so we made Run Jump Play.
