The Disney Channel is putting an emphasis on autism with an upcoming episode of its Emmy-nominated comedy “Girl Meets World.”

The cable network said a special episode airing Sept. 11 will explore the developmental disability.

Disney Channel officials said they worked with three autism experts to “help deliver an authentic storyline that can spark conversation among kids and their families.”

In the episode dubbed “Girl Meets Farkle,” Farkle Minkus wonders if he has Asperger’s syndrome and receives support from his friends Riley and Maya, the network said.

“Girl Meets World” is a sequel to ABC’s popular 1990s series “Boy Meets World.” The current show, which is in its second season, stars original cast members Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel as Cory and Topanga Matthews and focuses on the experiences of their daughter, Riley.
