The groundbreaking sitcom, which features a lead character and actor with cerebral palsy, was cancelled by ABC this past week.
The Television Academy of Arts and Sciences hosted a powerful discussion with Hollywood's top disability activists and creators.
Julia, a four-year-old muppet with autism, is helping children and society make big strides towards autism inclusion and acceptance.
"Actor/writer Ryan O’Connell, who has cerebral palsy, wants to change the way we talk about disabilities."
"People with disabilities certainly are not invisible in the real world – we are everywhere – so why should we continue to be invisible on screen?“
"Young people [with disabilities] are powerful, and they can have anything that they can decide to work hard for."
"We underestimate the power of role models. Just one great accurate representation can spark a thousand others."
