Griotte- France 5 Rue Sésame
One of the goals of the French co-production, Rue Sésame, is to integrate storylines that include children with disabilities. Griotte, a 7-year-old girl who uses a wheelchair, and sign language segments featuring hearing-impaired children teaching simple sign language phrases work toward this end. Griotte’s wheelchair is an actual racing-style chair designed for a small child. Griotte is popular with the other children on the show and often offers them rides in her chair.
