“We are the biggest Kibbles' fans now! Ian has an IEP, and he has a goal that talks about recognizing emotions. It's one that he hadn't been really progressing on. There is a song and whole storyline in the Kibbles video about how people are feeling, and after watching it he came up to me and said, "This is a sad face". And he made a sad face for me and it was the first time ever. It was a breakthrough that he make those faces”
-Cara, parent of a child with autism
