Disney Channel announces special Girl Meets World, 'Girl Meets Farkle'

Disney Channel has announced a special episode of Girl Meets World, "Girl Meets Farkle", which will deal with the important subject of Asperger's syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder.

Three experts were consulted on the episode to help make the story authentic in the hope it can spark conversation between kids and their families on this. 

"Girl Meets Farkle": Riley, Maya and Lucas emphasize the beauty of being unique as they rally around their friend Farkle Minkus, who may be on the autism spectrum. Meanwhile, his friendship with another student, Smackle, grows fonder. The episode premieres FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Guest starring are Cecilia Balagot ("Isadora Smackle"), Cyrina Fiallo ("Ms. Oben") and Lee Norris ("Stuart Minkus") and Kristanna Loken ("Jennifer Bassett Minkus"), who return to their "Boy Meets World" roles, now as Farkle’s parents.

More information about autism is available from the CDC website: cdc.gov/autism.
