What’s Up With Ben: Medikidz Explain Autism
With this in mind, Dr. Kim Chilman-Blair and Dr. Kate Hersov teamed up with a former Marvel graphic novel artist to create a series of comic books. Each comic is written by doctors and peer-reviewed by leading specialists in each respective therapy area. Medikidz is a resource designed to educate not only young patients, peers and their parents, but also to aid practitioners and educators in explaining health conditions as effectively as possible.
The books follow a team of five larger than life superheroes from outer space. The Medikidz each specialize in explaining a different part of the body. What’s up with Ben? is an engaging way to educate children about autism.
