Tue, 10/03/2017 - 12:00pm - 12:30pm

Caillou makes friends with Robbie, a deaf boy he meets in the park.

When Mom is busy on the phone all morning and doesn't have time for Caillou he feels very left out of things. He plays with his toy phone and then talks to Grandma on the real phone. He likes talking on the phone--it makes him feel very grown up. Caillou learns there are many different ways to communicate. He makes friends with Robbie, a deaf boy he meets in the park, and learns how to communicate using sign language. After getting caught in the rain, Caillou looses his voice, but manages to find other ways to communicate until his voice comes back. Caillou "Getting the Message" airs October 3 at 12 p.m. on WXXI-Kids.

This episode is presented as part of MOVE TO INCLUDE, a partnership between WXXI and the Golisano Foundation designed to stimulate community dialogue about the perspectives of people with physical and intellectual disabilities. Its mission is to ultimately build a community that celebrates abilities.
