I wanted to let readers know about a new show, Speechless, that starts tonight on ABC at 8:30 pm. It's about a family with a child with cerebral palsy. It sounds like, on the surface, it's a show about family challenges (which we can all relate to) but they just happen to have a child, JJ, with a disability.
The actor who plays JJ, Micah Fowler, does have cerebral palsy. Here's the review in the NY Times.
