Daniel and his new friend, Max, who is autistic, head to the playground.

In celebration of Autism Acceptance Month, WXXI is pleased to introduce our youngest viewers to Daniel Tiger's new friend Max in these two segments, airing Tuesday, April 6 at 9:30 a.m. on WXXI-TV:

Jodi’s Asthma
Daniel is playing Splat Ball with his friends at the Enchanted Garden, but Jodi’s asthma makes it hard for her to run around. When she stops to rest, Daniel comes up with a new sitting-down game so everyone can still play.

Daniel and Max Play at the Playground
Daniel feels left out at the playground when there’s no room for him to play with Katerina and Max at the xylophone. Max’s big sister, Amira, helps them find a way for everyone to play.
